The Bible Story Quilt features a colorful panel used by the International Mission Board to spread the gospel to non-literate people across the world. On it, there are forty-two pictures which depict major stories of the Bible: from Genesis to the ascension of Christ. The quilt comes with the IMB's information sheet listing the stories and corresponding scripture references. The quilt is backed with snuggly 100% cotton flannel. The binding is bias cut, 100% cotton, and double layered with mitered corners. Quilting is a straight stitch of white Gutermann thread along the outlines of the panel's pictures. This quilt has been made in a smoke/pet-free environment. It measures approximately 30" x 42". Machine wash cold.
The Bible Story Quilt makes a wonderful gift. It is practical as a baby blanket, and spiritually educational. With this quilt, tummy-time for baby presents a great opportunity for telling Bible stories as the precious child is engaged in studying the pictures. The quilt is large enough for a baby, but small enough for a wall-hanging which can be used to facilitate scripture memorization with older children. It is never too early to introduce children to the gospel.
This quilt's binding is finished with hand stitching. The backing features a cozy flannel of colorful vehicles and a cityscape: perfect for a little boy!
