In 2016 I was part of a Bible Study. We learned about Women of the Bible and each made a quilt with blocks representing 40 women. I pushed mine into an art quilt and didn't always follow the directions, but my friends kept me in the group and welcomed my creativity!
I won't bore you with 40 blocks, but will share a few of my favorites.
For Delilah I used a lock of my daughter's hair and an old pair of scissors I had kept from childhood:
Rachel and Leah features my Barbie Doll wedding dress from 50 years ago. My mom made the dress and accessories.
The Eve block is made from a hand towel a friend gave me. It came from Germany.
One of my favorites is the Joanna block. I like to think that she had her dog at her side as she followed Jesus, and just what is in that picnic basket?
My husband likes Esther's block. I think he likes the colors, although he is colorblind and I am not really sure what he sees!
Women of the Bible is currently hanging on the wall in our dining room.
