Bible Quilt Block 11

 The 11th block in the Bible Sample Quilt is the story of the World Wide Flood taken from Genesis 8:1-7. We've had some pretty horrendous storms here and I loved through Hurricane Gloria back in the 1980's in New England so I do know about rain and wind and even Tornados but this storm took the cake.  Noah had to built an ark for his family to survive - him and all the life on earth.

This block is called Open Window.  Despite my aversion to diamonds and Y seams this block went together pretty easily.

Bible Sampler Block 10

 Block 10 For the Bible Sampler Quilt is Noah and The Ark from Genesis 6:13-19.  The Story of how God Saved a remnant of his people from the destruction that came.  He has always promised a remnant of Believers will remain after any disaster.

The name of the block is Doors and Windows.  Basic squares - except they were very small!!

Bible Sampler Block 09

 The Ninth block for my Bible Sampler Quilt is Leaving the Garden based on Genesis 3:20-24.  The Consequence of sin (wrong doing) is usually a loss.  I remember when I was a child I broke the house rules and needed to be punished - it was just before my birthday - so my mother cancelled my birthday party.  My birthday was ignored that year.  You best believe I was on my best behavior for every year after that around my birthday.  Adam and Eve lost so much more for their sin.  They lost their beautiful home, their close intimate relationship with God and they were going to suffer pain and loss for their lives.  I don't like the consequences of my actions, but there are the direct result of disobeying God's Law.  But Praise God that he sent his son to pay my debt and save me from my sin.

Title of the block is Mother's Favorite.

Veteran's Day Family Tribute

 On this Veterans Day I wanted to pay homage to and Thank all the members of my family how have served and are serving in the armed forced for our country.  

First on the list is my Grandfather William Edmond Doutt.  He was 17 when he joined the Army in 1898 to serve in the Spanish American War.  He served in Puerto Rico as a Wagon Driver until he was severely injured and spent 6 month in the Hospital in San Juan.  He married my Grandmother in 1899 and they had 11 Children.  

Next is my Brother David.  He served in the Air Force during the 60 as an Airframe Mechanic.  

My husband, David, served in the Airforce as an electronic technician during the late 60's and early 70's.  We were married when he got back stateside.

My Brother Wayne and his Wife Sharyn both served in the Army during the late 1980's and early 1990's  both were sent to the first Gulf War.  They married while they were in the Army and were stationed around the world.

Bible Sampler Block 08

 Block Number 8 in my Bible Sampler Quilt is The Curse.  This is taken from Genesis 3:10-13, 16-19.  It is the result of the disobedience.  We all have to suffer the consequences of our actions - even though there are those who would like to do away with consequences - it cannot be done.  We have to live with them for the rest of our earthly life.  Jesus takes away the eternal punishment when you accept Him as your Lord and Savior, but that does not remove the consequence of your actions in this life.  

The other name for this block is Adam's Refuge.  More Y seams which I'm thankfully getting better at!
