Description

So here is a quilt I designed myself.  I got the idea from those ever-famous memory picture quilts, but instead of pictures, I decided to do bible verses.  Each member of my family has a favorite bible verse.  I created the design on the computer and copied that design on a thin piece of muslin fabric and then hand-stitched the verse and the design.  The following are the chosen bible verses:

Psalm 23:1-6
Philippians 4:13
Jeremiah 29:11
John 15:5
Isaiah 41:10
Luke 12:34
Isaiah 40:31
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (mine!)
John 3:15; and
John 14:27

I made this quilt for my mom because she deserves it.  Not only has she been raising 9 kids, she is a single-mother.  She was my inspiration.  Unfortunately, this quilt had to take the brunt of my inexperience since I had never done a quilt alone before, much less designed one.  So, there is very little quilting and some blocks were a little uneven.  But, I did it and it's now hanging proudly in the house.  Yay for accomplishment!  :smiley:

I just realized that some of the pictures are really really blurry. So sorry about that. I was using my iPhone and we all know those aren't exactly professional cameras. Hope you like the pics anyway.
