The Bible Sampler Quilt Block of the Month

The Bible Sampler Block of the Month


Devotion meets design in a stunning sampler quilt honoring both the Old and New Testament. The Bible Sampler quilt evokes the spirit of favorite Bible passages in fabric and was designed by Laurie Aaron Hird author and designer of The Farmer's Wife. The Bible Sampler Quilt features 96 six-inch Bible-themed quilt blocks paired with 96 Bible passages for inspiration.  The book "The Bible Sampler Quilt" is required to make this quilt but is not included in the program price. If you order your book at the time of registration you'll save 20% off the price of the book and it will ship with your first block at no additional charge. Regular price of the book is $28.99. The book provides instructions for template piecing, paper piecing and--where applicable--rotary cutting so you can piece your blocks based on your preferred technique. Instructions and cutting templates are on a CD in the book so you must have access to a computer to print the PDFs. The fabrics used in this block of the month program are reproduction Civil War prints in colors similar to those used in the original quilt. Fabrics are packaged by block for your convenience. The finished quilt size is 84.5" x 108.5".
