The positive feedback that I received encouraged me to increase the scope of the inspirational message that I wrote for each pattern. The next quilt I designed was Women of the Bible -- a little more non-traditional. It's a monster , king-size quilt, featuring 40 different women in the Bible.
But I couldn't stop there. I moved on to Have A Little Faith, which was available in 4 sizes. The quilts each have 20 unique blocks, representing 20 aspects of faith.
Now I'm working on Boys of the Bible. The quilts are a mystery, so far. There will be 100 total blocks available in the series. The quilt can be finished as a 30 block quilt, 60 block quilt or 100 block quilt. The fabric requirements and introduction can be found on our website.
Here's what a 30-block throw quilt might look like:
We're currently on Blocks 47 & 48. Previously, I have inserted the block images in our weekly newsletter. Quilters are given access to download the block patterns and message for FREE. Again, I have received lots of feedback. Many quilters have asked if I would post the messages separately so that they can share the message with their Christian (non-quilting) friends.
So here we are, in the Stitchin' Tree Blog. Each week, I will post the message section of the Boys of the Bible patterns. I will link back to the patterns on our website (like always).
Feel free to share with your friends! God bless us everyone! (and He does)
