There are twelve blocks in the quilt each one symbolizing biblical verses. The blocks begin with Creation and following through each block tells the story from Creation to birth, death and resurrection. Twelve ladies from the Women of the ELCA (WELCA) group embroidered one of the blocks. The blocks were then placed in order with sashing added between the blocks and a border around the entire piece. The project was then taken to Sharon Perlot for quilting. If you take a close look at the quilting, Sharon, created a special effect for each block bringing out the highlights in the embroidery. The quilt was bound and Jon Pearson hung it for us. It truly is a special gift to the church from the WELCA ladies.
