    Women of the Bible BOW Quilt

    I just finished my rendition of the "Women of the Bible" quilt, instructions furnished by The Quilt Corner http://www.quiltcorneronline.com. This was a block of the week installment program with 40 blocks plus the
    set in blocks and borders. The finished quilt size is 110" x 125". Each block was named after a woman in the Bible with a short story describing the woman and her circumstances. It was an amazing 40 weeks of reconnecting.
    I finished it before the last installment of the borders because my quilt frame will not accommodate the full size as given so my quilts finished size is appx. 82 X 97". Absolutely no clue as to how this would turn out when I started it over 40 weeks ago but I am really pleased with the finished results and appreciate the refresher course of the Bible.

    Oofta, that is lovely! I downloaded all the blocks and stories and hope to start this after the holidays. What inspiration you've given me. Beautiful quilt.

    love all the bright colors and blocks
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Absolutely stunning. The lovely bright colors and the black and white setting is wonderful. I think it will be beautiful however you display it and certainly a wonderful conversation piece. I had vowed 'no new patterns' as a part of next year's resolution. Maybe, I need to get it now.

    Gorgeous quilt! Has been on my bucket list. Is anyone aware of a series that will start for this quilt in 2016? I googled, but didn't find anything......

    Excellent job with your piecing and the fabric you used.

    Love the way yours turned out especially the black and white finishing blocks. I have all the blocks done, just need to make the finishing blocks, but I have to finish some Christmas gifts first. I used stash for mine, but I may have to get some black and white for the finishing blocks. I'd thought of black and white, but wasn't sure. After seeing yours, I will definitely use b/w. Thanks for showing us. I'm impressed that you have it all done so quickly.

    I love the colors you used in your quilt. Absolutely stunning! I'm also impressed with how quickly you have finished your quilt. I've downloaded all the blocks, and want to start after the first of the year. You have definitely inspired me! Great job!
