    Our supply pastor who has been with us for 10 months, is finishing up next month, and I'd love to make him a quilt. Most likely I'll do like a couch size.
    I would love some ideas of quilt patterns for it, maybe make it a sampler?
    Anyone have any ideas, or seen a similar one done?
    Thank you!
    Diana :-)

    any idea of his/her favorite colors?

    what kind of dwelling he/she lives in?

    I love couch size quilts (to me, a couch size is about 60 x 85) - big enough for most adults to cover up in - small enough to be able to stitch in the ditch quilt it on my machine

    Are you planning this as a surprise?

    Some of the religious symbols are beautiful and work up well. You might be able to find them in either the church's literature or at a library.

    It would probably be helpful/fun to explain each block's name so that would make the quilt more meaningful. I don't think many non-quilters know or care what the block names are - they are either appealing or not.

    And yes, Bear, it'll be a surprise. He's a really wonderful man, and I just wanted to do something nice back for him.
