I officially started on the Bible sampler quilt. I spent a few days thinking about what colors I wanted to use in it as well as fabric type. I have a good deal of batiks on hand and since I’m going to be paper piecing all 96 blocks I decided batiks it is.
This particular block is made with fabric from Edyta Sitar that I used in a quilt I made for my sister’s birthday this year that I named Elvis.
I thought originally I would make these in numerical order and then I saw the first block had Y seams and thought….let’s start with something easy instead! This quilt will probably take me through half of 2017 to finish so no hurry on this one.
Update – this is based on a book titled “Bible Sampler Quilt” by Laurie Hird. I think I might keep a running total of the number of pieces used to make this quilt for the fun of it! This one has 11 pieces.
