BIBLE BLOCK #1

I have admired the blocks being done by at least three others of Jan Patek's "Bible Quilt" and have decided to join in.  Here is block number one.  The blocks are 16 inches finished.

A follower asked to see all four of the blocks I have finished from the Collector Series quilt by Jan Patek, so I am posting a picture taken on the design wall.  It is not the setting they belong in, but just taken close together for the picture.
I hope to prepare at least one more block for the quilt today.

Take some time today for yourself and stitch a little whether by machine or by hand.  Enjoy!  I know I will.

Love your Bible Block. I believe I have changed my mind about the Bible quilt I was going to do and would like this one instead. I do believe my DIL would really like it.Thanks for visiting my blog. I am so excited as I believe they will be doing drywall today,then the cabinets and counters. I am off to the quilt shop in Titisville that is closing to check it out again. Have a beautiful day.

oh my goodness! here I am again wanting to follow right along in your footsteps. I am not stalking honest but I'm getting to the quilting now on my walking rabbit and may have to start this Bible quilt. Got the pattern and now find out you are doing it do :-) I love your first block and yes, it is definitely calling me. The Collector series blocks are gorgeous too. Boy, the days are just too short to fit in all these lovelies!
