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?
Garden of Eden
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Garden of Eden quilt block is another block that falls into the category of uneven nine patch, so called because the three rows making up the nine patches are not all the same width. However, the good news is that the sewing method is the same for any nine patch with equal sided units.
This quilt block is a perfect block to introduce the quilter to the square in a square patch, resulting in a square set on point. This is a common patch used in many quilt blocks.
The sample quilts illustrated give you an idea of different ways to lay out your final quilt to make it your own.
