Rosemary Youngs has championed the Bible quilts in my search to this point. She has designed two awesome Bible quilts, one for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament. She created these quilt block patterns about 10 years ago.
Each block is appliqued using fabric pieces to create the unique Bible story pictures.
She taught quilting classes in the town where she lives using her hand applique patterns. Sunday school teachers were eager to take her classes to make the Bible quilts to teach children.
Rosemary says, “It was really fun to design the blocks and to use special charms or buttons to make them three dimensional.”
Rosemary’s quilt patterns are available on her website, Rosemary Youngs’ Quilt Books, CDs and Patterns.
