With 24 biblical blocks, you can create a wall hanging or even a quilt. They are created by the paper piecing technique. Not familiar with this creating this type of quilt block? Then all you need do is read four-page overview and you will be all set to start.
With blocks like the Manger, Crown of Thorns, The Cross, David and Goliath, The Harp and Bethlehem Star, to name a few, you can create a whole quilt from one block type or tell you own story with several. Use all 24 and you will have your own creation of a sampler quilt.
Each block comes with a biblical quote and photo of the finished block, along with the size. A cutting list is included which also gives the fabric needed. There are lots of detailed graphics in the instruction section of the pattern. Templates are included and notes and tips are set off in a colored box throughout the book.
A one-page quilt gallery and a bio about the author complete this book. So grab a copy and get started on your own biblical design.
Lisa Cogar has assembled 24 beautiful quilt blocks, each representing parts of the Bible. Some are traditional and have been used over the years like Jacob's Ladder, and others were created by Cogar such as Joseph's Coat, Hosanna, and Crown of Thorns. Each block has a Bible verse with it. There is a world of possibilities--and stories--to explore within the pages.
This is an awesome quilting book. It's designed for intermediate to experienced quilters. The patterns and graphs are very easy to follow, and the blocks are beautiful and inspiring.
Lisa's mother's beautiful crochet and embroidery creations inspired Lisa at age 13 to try her hand at needlepoint, and then crochet. Lisa found enjoyment in creating things with her hands and experienced a satisfying feeling of accomplishment when a project was completed.
As a young woman, Lisa met Sandy Heminger, who was opening a quilt shop in Akron, Ohio. Lisa worked at Sandy's shop cutting fabric, waiting on customers, and making store models--happy to be among fabric and quilts. She took as many classes as possible, trying all the techniques that were offered, and it was there that Lisa learned the art of quilting. After a couple of years, Lisa was given the opportunity to teach a hand-quilting class. Then her love for sampler quilts unfolded, as she was able to help design and draft blocks for the block-of-the-month program.
Other important activities in Lisa's life are raising and training horses, gardening, and stargazing. Next she's planning to start a little chicken farm.
