Priscilla Quilt Pattern: A Bible Block

"Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my helpers in Christ Jesus." Romans 16:3

Priscilla block

Words From Charlotte Bull

Who was she, this woman Paul so respected that he mentions her before her husband and refers to her in five different places?

Pricilla was a co-worker of Paul in both building the church and in carrying our tent-making in several cities. She was probably a good and wise woman, certainly she was knowledgeable in doctrines of the newly established church. Many women today consider her to be an example of a woman in a leadership position - a deaconess, so to speak.

The block, in other color and value variations, is known as World without End or Golden Wedding. It forms great secondary patterns although the basic design is very simple.

12" block patterns for templates

Quilting experience is assumed for this New Testament block as there are no specific directions. I suggest you use the templates if you are making a sampler quilt. If you are making a full quilt with this pattern you can use the rotary cutting PDF as a guide but some are not complete.

If you are new to quilting I recommend the Old Testament blocks.
