I had to scrounge around for blocks 4 and 5. Either wound up in my junkmail or I deleted it. Finally found Numbers and Deuteronomy. Now I'm behind again. Carol

I just joined Quilt and lose tonight and found this thread. Thanks for posting the Bible Quilt. I am looking forward to putting this quilt together. I have tons of scraps that will work great in something like this. I have already downloaded the first 3 blocks.
Thanks again

The third block, Leviticus, was sent out yesterday. I keep forgetting the name of it so I had to go back and hunt for messages from Quilt and Bee to find it. This is kind of like a Dear Jane quilt but only with the bible. Carol

I just finished my first two blocks. I have a large amount of color coordinated fabric that I bought as a kit and I'm using that just because it is easy. If you don't like triangles and geese, this will not please you, especially the second block. But it is a great way to learn to sew the triangles so that you can enjoy them in the future. One thing that isn't mentioned in the instructions is squaring up your blocks. They should measure 6 1/2 when finished but those small flying geese can get wonky. I trimmed and stretched mine so that the seams matched and on the second block, I nestled the seams on the center strip and the outside strips to avoid bulk. Carol

I signed up for the newsletter the other night and received the newsletter today? when I opened my email. I can receive email on my android phone. I was able to view the newsletter in my email program and also download the links to the fabric requirements and both block patterns. I think the fabric requirements are if someone wants everything coordinated color-wise. If you are using scraps, it probably wouldn't matter. I hope I can find some sewing time so I don't have to wait too long to work on this.

A flying geese tip from Kaye England! I took Kay'es crafty class on Repiecing the past. It was loaded with flying geese and I learned SEW much from her! You can chain piece the geese, always working with the flat side of the large triangle on the left and sewing from the top to the point. Then this is the key! Finger Press the seam away from the large triangle so that the geese always lay flat! If you do this, you will always have a neat wrong side! Carol

The newsletter is out this morning with the first two blocks, Genesis and Exodus. These look like a fun way to use up some scraps and you would have an amazing quilt when you finish. Karla, You can read books on a tablet or IPAD but not a phone I don't think. All you have to do is download them from Amazon.com to your IPAD and away you go! And if you subscribe to E-reader, you can get books for 99 cents. Carol

Saw this and signed up for the newsletter. I will be looking forward to this. I hope that I can get in some sewing time now that I am in school.

Carol can you tell me how to get books on my iPod? Or better yet is there such a thing as audio books for iPod/iPad? Then I could listen while I quilt.

I haven't gotten the newsletter yet where the Blessing quilt is. Do you know when it comes into your inbox? I did sign up but didn't get a confirmation email either.
Thanks, -Karla

Carol I have a Coby Tablet and can get email, however, there are many times when we travel I just don't have the time to go on the computer. I also am one of those people who like to dis-connect from it all for a while.
With my PPS I need down time to rest, so while others can come back to hotel room and surf the web, download pictures, I MUST tuck in and take a nap or I will just not be able to do anything the next day. I dislike it but it is what it is.
Thanks for the tips, it makes me feel good that others care about me.

Have a wonderful day!

Pam, a simple but not too cheap way to stay connected to your emails and newsletters is to have an IPAD or an IPHONE. I have both as I use them in my business. But the IPAD is super and you get all your emails plus access to the internet and all the websites you want to visit. You can check into Sparkpeople while traveling or read a book, just like a Kindle. You can play bridge or solitaire and I like Scrabble to exercise my brain. All this for about $15 per month with AT&T but you do have to purchase the IPAD. I don't know what we did without this stuff. Soon, in the future, no one will have a land telephone, just IPHONES or whatever new invention will be out there. Carol

When you sign up for the newsletter, each week you will get the pattern. It is called Blessings and the first week is Genesis 1. You can search for that on their website or just wait for the newsletter next week. I have it and can send it to anyone's email if you want me to. It is an ohio star but she talks about why she selected it as it pertains to the bible. You can also search on her website for the pattern. I like these sew alongs but you do have to pick and choose as you can be overwhelmed with them.

I just went to the link above and if you click on home across the top, takes you to their home page. And on the right it talks about Blessings. You can contact them or wait until you get the newsletter next week for the block. You have to sign up to participate. Carol

I would love to see the blocks, but since we travel so much I cannot get all these weekly/daily emails for the quilt sites, so I cannot sign up for this. So sad, but it is what it is.

Keep us posted on the blocks as you get them.
