    Love your quilt. I am in the process of designing a bible quilt myself. Yours gives me inspiration to finish my design and get it made.

    Several of you are asking for a tutorial on how to make the crayon-colored Bible quilt. I already have a tutorial on my Bible Quilts blog: http://biblequilts.com/?p=16

    I am currently pushing a deadline on my applique Bible quilt blocks which are doubling as illustrations on my first Bible storybook, The Creation. So this tutorial will have to suffice for now, but it should be enough to get you going. I'll be happy to answer questions.

    If you use this for VBS I would love to get some pictures of children participating in making Bible quilts. Unfortunately I have the idea and the ability, but my church is short on children the right age for this and my grandchildren live so far away. I got a few pictures while we were making this one. I would also like to showcase the quilts different groups make.

    Great idea! What ever works to get kids to know the Bible stories and learn when they are young.
