    Weekend Project - Embroidered Scripture Quilt

    This was a fast weekend project a very ill QB friend. The idea was to "cover her with prayer". Each block is embroidered with a different inspirational quote from Scripture. It was put together very simply with stitch in the ditch and at the last minute I decided to add some lace hem tape to break up the white. In the interest of speed, the binding was a fold-over of the backing. I am hoping that one day I'll have time to make a much larger one as a raffle item for my church - perhaps with stippling next time.

    How very sweet! I love the idea of being covered with prayer. I like it! I'm sure the recipient will as well.

    I'm terribly sorry to "barge-in" like this, (I'm new and a lurker---I LOVE looking at all the beauty and creativity on this board!!!), but I have been looking for some cross stitch or embroidery patterns of Christian Scripture for a long time...could I ask please where you got the patterns? Are they stamped or Iron-ons maybe?

    No, TruMama, they are machine embroidered. The Scriptures have been digitized with vintage looking flowers and birds and other little bits of comfort and interest. There is no way I could possibly have done it by hand over the weekend!

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Kim, that depends on what you want to do and your budget. I use a Brother PE-770. Hop on over the the embroidery machine thread and you'll get lots of assistance http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...un-t32969.html
