Catching up

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. Bible quilts are continually on my mind, but since I’m not the artist who can draw the coloring pages, I’m unable to crank out a lot of new stuff. Most of my pictures correspond with the Bible storybooks I am working on. I am still praying for artists who will share my vision for getting Bible quilts on Children’s beds.

My latest project is the story of Jonah. I’ve come up with a few layouts for these pictures, but have a long way to go before I will start sewing on them. I’ve included one of the Jonah layout ideas with this post.

I’ve also been sewing a banner using the pictures from The First Christmas Coloring Pages. This project was completed with the help of the youth at my church. I’ll post a picture when it is finished.

I am swallowing hard today as I venture into something new. I ordered a set of quality textile paints that I hope will help me create some of the details I’ve wanted to add that are too tiny to applique – such as the beak on the dove in my header, and some of the smaller animals on Noah’s Ark. Can you imagine mice and elephants in the same appliqued quilt block? I’m eagerly waiting for the paints to come in the mail. I’m also praying I will be able to develop the skill needed to use them well.
