Back to the Bible

If you have read my blog for a while, you might remember that a few years back Quiltkeemosabe and I embarked upon an adventure: we challenged each other by committing to Rosemary Youngs' book: The Quilt Block Bible by making, and writing instructions for, each of the 202 six inch blocks pictured in the book!

We kept up pretty well for a time-- meeting monthly for an exchange of information and to eat lunch together. But then, as often happens, life crowded in and our progress was halted. The last time that I even posted about this project was back in September of 2017; at that point I had this much done and was working on more. We realized this summer that we have well over the majority done, and with one final push we can get over that finish line! I began piecing and writing again (above, left).
We will meet again next week. I have almost all of my assigned twenty blocks prepared and ready. 
These "Split Square" blocks emerged as a "leader-ender" bonus from all that Bible block piecing.  
And in the meantime:  Hexie Garden is off the frame today, I am really fond of this "Diamonds Are Forever" pantograph by Urban Elementz. I believe it really adds to overall quilt design. I will bind it in navy.
Life is Good!

Lovely panto. Kudos to you for making more Bible blocks. It would be a shame NOT to finish that project.

Beautiful quilting!

Good for you in being determined to finish your Bible block project! Actions mean more than intentions!
