Debbie Cornett sent photos of her Bible quilt with pictures her mother (Ilene) hand embroidered and Debbie and Yvonne (mother-in-law) hand quilted. Ilene also helped with the quilting.
Debbie looked long and hard to find just the right fabric to complement the colors of embroidery thread her mother used to create the Bible story pictures. She then began working on a layout for a queen-size quilt. But as Debbie worked on the quilt, her widowed mother moved twice, and with the downsizing she only needed a twin bed quilt. So she had to re-design the layout for a smaller sized quilt.
This quilt was definitely a family project. The quilt and quilters have covered many miles as Debbie lives in Texas, her mother Ilene did the embroidery in her Tennessee home, and her mother-in-law Yvonne did the final quilting from her home in Kentucky, Her sister-in-law Anita Cornett was kind enough to take the photos of the individual blocks after completion.
These embroidery patterns are available as “Aunt Martha’s Hot Iron Transfers.” There is an Old Testament set and a New Testament set available and they can be purchased online from JoAnn Fabrics website.
