    Talking quilt sayings

    My church group is looking for bible related quilt sayings. eg: As ye sew so shall ye reap. Help. We want to paint around the room with these.

    No direct help here ... though I know one time I saw a pattern for a quilt (BOW or BOM?) where each block was a Bible related block. Then with the block, they had a related object or meditation moment/story based on the name of the block along with the relevant scriptures. Try some Googles, and I bet you will soon be there!

    The verse you mention should read 'sow' not 'sew'. Here are a few suggestions: 1 Thess 4:11-12, Col 3:17, Ex 35:25-35, Eccl 3:7, Eccl 9:10, Ps 90:17, Prov 31, Prov 31:31, Luke 6:45. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. This sounds like a really nice project, please post pics when you are done.

    One I remember, though I don't know the source is: "Idle hands are the devil's workshop".

    Noella, go to the home page of quilting board, click on MAIN, click on Start New Topic, and ask your question there. It's probable no one will see it here to answer it for you.

    This will certainly be an interesting project. Let us know the verses you finally decide on.
