New Bible Case...

A new Bible case for my new Bible is completed! Yeah! The new Bible came the day after my birthday, but last weekend was a little busy, so I wasn't able to get started on the case till this glad to get it done for this Sunday! And I'm able to finish it today for Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean at crazy mom quilts.

My first dilemma was what design to make on the outside...I finally chose the Carpenter Wheel (Star) block. I also decided on a tan, pink, red combination of materials.
When I was first squaring my HST, I miss judged and one of them was a little off, but I used it anyway...but without realizing it - it ended up rather noticeable in the top left diamond.

Here is the flap side of the case...
Chad helped me decide on where to put the extra strip of material and how to quilt the how it turned out!

Here is the inside. Above the pocket for my Bible and notebook is a small pocket for colored pencils to highlight with...
This is a picture of the entire back/outside...
I just noticed another piecing mishap in this picture, the far left diamond is off. Must not be as distracting in person!

I do love the materials!

Linking this up to the fun weekend parties...

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
And this is the word which by the gospel
is preached unto you.
1 Peter 1:25

God's Words, the Bible, will always matter how people do try to get rid of it. We learn and are taught by His Words...we should keep them protected and fight to preserve them.

Keeping His Words...
