    women of the bible quilt

    Made this quilt for my dear Aunt. It was a challenge for me but I finished it. Made it scrappy using fabrics that I already had. She was very pleased.

    Beautiful quilt and a thoughtful gift! This is on my to do list as our local quilt shop has been providing the blocks as a free pattern. Every two weeks they send two blocks. I’m saving them at the moment until I finish some other projects.

    Beautiful quilt! You have a good eye for color. All your blocks look great together, all soft colors.

    Me too. Started with four blocks and didn't like the colors I chose so there it sat. Patski's scrappy is
    lovely and her persistence paid off. Congratulations.
