Today was not only Father's Day but also Prayer Quilt Dedication day.
I am sure there are countless prayer quilt groups across the country, and that many have varying criteria for who receives the quilts. Our quilts go to members and friends of our church and to our members' friends, families, and colleagues. Our challenge is to create enough quilts to meet the needs of those among us and to do it with such a small group. Yesterday a "new" person came to our meeting, so we hope our numbers will grow. We were also blessed today with a sewing machine we will be able to keep at church; I have been blessed with another machine to donate. That should make it easier for some people to come and quilt with us without having to transport a machine from home. (None of us are as young as we used to be.)
One of the things weighing on my heart is that we need to make some prayer quilts for older members of our congregation who are not facing health challenges--just because they have so blessed us for so many years/decades [and we certainly don't want them to have to face a health crisis in order to be blessed by a quilt].
