Gratefully we don't have to do this very often but this morning at church we tied and prayed over a quilt for one of our members who is going through chemotherapy. I guess I am head of the Prayers and Squares chapter at our church and for the past two years I've made about 12 of these quilts (same Around the World pattern) in different colors. Some of the quilts have been prayed over and given away but I still have four flimsies in my drawer for emergencies. Last week we got word about the member and on Thursday and then today at church we tied knots and prayed over the quilt. Which reminds me, I need to make a label for this still.
Most of the fabric for these quilts are pulled from my stash and I try to keep a couple pinkish ones and a couple bluish ones on hand. (My own prejudices.) The bluish ones tend to be called into services more than the pinkish ones... I've written about how the solid fabric just sort of fell into my lap (thank you Lord) and I still have rolls of both green and maroon in my closet. I hope that this quilt and the love and prayers that it contains will bring comfort to the man who will receive it.
