    Hello
    My daughter and her husband are Sunday School teachers and I want to make them a bible/spiritual/sacred/...etc something like that. I have found a few ideas but nothing I want to do. Most are childrens styles. I did find Jacobs Tears which is what I may do. Have any of you made any for churches?

    I've seen a pattern book with Bible blocks but I don't know what the name of it is. Maybe someone here does?

    Seems like I saw a quilt that was Flowers of the Bible. You might do a google search and see what you find. Keep us posted on your project.

    Most Bible quilts I've seen are samplers, with each block representing a person, place, or event in the Bible.

    This site used to have free Bible blocks, but now you can order PDF patterns: http://members.shaw.ca/kigraham/index.html

    This site started with "Women of the Bible" quilt based on a devotional focusing on the same theme and has expanded to other themes. http://www.patternsoffaith.com/

    You could also do something similar yourself. You could use a block library (quilterscache.com comes to mind as an easy online source) and select a variety of blocks based on their names.

    We did one for one of our elders using a cross as the center of the quilt. Appliqued dogwood on it and embroidered "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life" on it.

    My LQS had a gorgeous lap quilt someone did with every other block embroidered Bible verses. Other blocks are beautiful pale blue/green tonals. Bible vereses are embroidered on very pale blue tonal with embroidery in a mediun tan. It is absolutely so gorgeous and peaceful looking. Makes you feel like you are looking at the land, sky and sea, with God's words spread all over.

    I've used 'talking quilts' in the past. Seems like they were well loved.
