I have also joined the Women of the Bible group on Yahoo Groups. And, this is Eve. The colors are symbolic for me:
Green - the vegetation of the garden
Blue - the water flowing through the garden
Yellow - Sunshine
Pink - God's love for humanity, a mother's love for her children, and the beautiful flowers in the garden.
This study/quilt along is a bit of a stretch for me. I was raised as a Christian, and have, at times, been very religious. However, I've had some very unfortunate experiences in organized religion. I am also a staunch feminist and liberal. Somewhere in all of that, my faith and feelings about religion and attending church have suffered. However, I'm drawn to this study/group/quilt. So, we'll see where this takes me. I guess I didn't really need to write the above explanation, but it seems more honest for me to write the disclaimer.
I paper-pieced this block. I purchased the EQ pattern set and printed the "parts" for an 8" block. I used Carol Doak's paper, which makes tearing it off super easy. I also used an add-a-quarter ruler to measure and cut the seam allowances. This is not a necessity but makes the process easier.
I'm happy with Eve and look forward to blocks symbolizing other women of the Bible.
