Quilted Devotions 24 biblical blocks, by Lisa Cogar

A new book released this spring, "Quilted Devotions, 24 Biblical Blocks", has a collection of 24 beautiful quilt blocks, each representing parts of the Bible.  This treasure of a book, written by Lisa Cogar,  is published by Martingale & Company, home of That Patchwork Place. 

This delightful book provides insights on how to make the 24 blocks for a sampler quilt that measures 74½" x 106½", or you could choose your favorite four blocks to make a wall hanging.  Insights are shared on how to make paper pieced blocks, how to make traditional piecing using templates, and applique, as well as insights on fabric selection, pressing tips, and more.

{above} The 4-block Wall Quilt instructions in this book are well written and easy to follow. I love how they allow you to choose any of the 24 blocks in this book to make a beautiful wall hanging!

The instructions in this book are targeted towards intermediate to experienced quilters, but the inspiration in this book is clearly for quilters of all levels.

The Quilted Devotions Quilt is breathtaking. 4 ladies at our church created 20 blocks into a quilt for as a presentation to our church this month. I would love to send you a photo of this quilt when completed in vibrant colors. Thank you for your Biblical Blocks!
