Our friends, Stephanie Kepecs and Joanne Perlmutter, have generously offered another of their free patterns, named Genesis, a 21″ x 21″ art quilt.
When offering this pattern to us, Stephanie commented, “We feel that Genesis, the story of creation, is our very best pattern! It took me years to come up with this design. You could search until the cows come home and you will not find another pattern that represents Genesis. I made one for a Torah cover in a synagogue, but (the wall hanging) would be fitting for any church. It also makes a perfect baby gift!”
This wall hanging is more elaborate in design than their other patterns due to the details that are necessary to tell the creation story. Stephanie and Joanne thought through all the particulars, planning a solid outer border to represent the 7th day, a day of rest.
Each panel can be made with different methods of piecing. Panels may be appliquéd or paper-pieced. You get to choose your sewing method of choice! The free downloadable pattern includes both options.

Stephanie says, “Joanne and I both feel strongly that to teach someone is a gift! We get such pleasure seeing someone finish a treasure for their family.” After you’ve created this wall hanging, please share photos of your work of art!

Thanks again, Stephanie and Joanne!

Bye for now,
