Hello Quilters!  It’s time for STEP TWO of the Mystery quilt at beejaysquiltingdesigns.com.   Email me at janecanquilt62842@gmail.com  if you have any questions.  In Step ONE, you received the supply list for fabric required to make the whole quilt. If you are like every quilter that I know, you have enough fabric in your stash to make one of these Mystery quilts for every one in your family for Christmas! :)  As you probably guessed from the picture below my quilt looks like Christmas fabric (theme).  I could have chosen any color or decor (theme), my stash is quite extensive!

Don’t forget to read “Did You Know?” at the end of this article and be the first to comment with the Bible reference. All you have to say in the comment is the where the “quote” is found in the Bible.  For example from a previous article: The quote was from Psalm 27:14. Remember it has to be from this current article.

Now it’s time to cut the required pieces from each of the colors. So get out your fabric and your cutting board, rotary cutter, straight edge ruler and let’s get started! IMG_4714

My Bible reference for this post is I Kings 7:19 & 26.  This is where you will find the answer.
