These Bible quilt block patterns are not easy to find today, but we still have some old books that have great old time Biblical designs. Religion was a very strong and vital force in the lives of the early settlers; and as a result, the women who were devout to the Bible often made biblical references in naming their quilts.
The collection of twelve in this book contains some of these Bible quilt block patterns that are most attractive because the blocks consist of many pieces set together to form a dainty and eye-catching pattern, for example: “Joseph's Coat” or “David and Goliath”.
Also included are coverlets made from just two units, which are easily carried about for ideal pick-up needlework during spare moments and which are quickly piece together to form a pretty quilt. Two of these are “Job's Troubles” and “Wonder-of-the-World”
