Quilters have been making quilt blocks to reflect passages or people in the bible for centuries. Here are some of those blocks to reflect those references in the Bible. How many of these blocks bring to mind the corresponding bible story?
David and Goliath
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The David and Goliath quilt block is an addition to my ever-growing collection of biblical blocks. This is a seven patch (since it is designed on a 7 x 7 grid), but I choose to construct it using my favourite method -- as an uneven nine patch. This method works in what I call "chunks" rather than sewing row-by-row. However, if the latter is your preference, then you choose which method is right for you.
The block features lots of half square triangles and flying geese patches, to keep you in practice.
The two sample quilts illustrated use standard layouts. One has blocks set side by side while the other uses an on point setting with sashing strips separating the blocks and a few blank blocks added in order to feature your quilting.
