Boys of the Bible
We had individuals join our Women of the Bible quilt journey from our shop in Hennessey, Okla. to all the way in Africa. We were blown away by the response, and inspired by the results. We didn't want to see it end, which is why we are so thrilled to be introducing Boys of the Bible.
Over 900 men are mentioned in the Bible — far too many to include all of them in this quilt, but all worthy of further study and reflection. Throughout this pattern series, we will take a closer look
at 100 men mentioned in the Bible. We will call these men, “Boys of the Bible.” Some were truly bad (evil), others were somewhat bad (flawed), and other were good and faithful.
Each week for 50 weeks, we will introduce you to two men of the Bible. Through our study of these men, we will traverse nearly all of the books of the Bible. Each pattern will include references to scripture and a message for reflection. At the end of each pattern, space is provided for your own personal reflection.
You can use this space to recall your personal thoughts regarding the Bible Boy, or you can use the space to reflect on your process/progress when constructing the quilt. Your completed journal will become a cherished treasure to accompany your finished keepsake quilt.
Each block will finish 8” x 12” — an 8” square block with two 2” x 8” tabs. The tab space serves two purposes: setting units & (optional) name/scripture embroidery. The quilt can be constructed as a scrappy quilt, but was designed to feature three block color pathways with one contrast fabric. The three colors should be analogous: three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.
This entire 100 block pattern series is absolutely FREE to our customers. It includes all 100 blocks plus finishing instructions. In order to keep you from missing out, we will promote the downloadable pattern via Facebook, our website: www.quiltnow.com and in our emails. Two block patterns will be available every Friday at 10 AM. You will have one week to download the two patterns; after that, two different patterns will be available. Each set of two patterns will expire at Midnight the night before the next two patterns are released.
We will have block kits available if you want to make your quilt to replicate ours. These block kits will be available in Stonehenge fabric, and will be available as a throw- 30 blocks- 60" x 72", double/queen- 60 blocks- 84" x 92" or king- 100 bocks- 108" x 112". We will offer a finishing kit at a later date, which includes the inner border and binding. We have also thrown the piano key border in with your finishing kit purchase FREE of charge!
If you miss downloading the patterns, you can purchase the complete pattern, which will come in the form of a CD here. From that CD, you will be able to print the entire quilt pattern. If you miss a single week, fear not! You can purchase past patterns for $5 per set of two. Please know, we are contractually unable to extend the free period beyond a week due to our agreement with the pattern maker.
