ABC Wednesday--Year Two --Q


Go here if you would like to join us for ABC Wednesday. . . Mrs Nesbitt



Q is for quilts that our ladies group at Grace Lutheran made for the Veterans in the VA Hospital, for a project at the Oregon LWML convention and and also for people during their last days at the hospital. (For those, we make some plain squares for so loved ones can write a memory on them when they visit the dying loved one. Then the family has a memory quilt to cherish when they no longer have their loved one.) Anyway, they were on display in our church the first week in May to be blessed before given away.

A strange way to mark the quilts. "Giving blessings?"
Is that useful?

Pernille's ting og tang said...

I have ones did a quilt but I think I'm better to do other tings;) But it was fun:)

What a great project!

Good going, Pauli. I wish I could get a group going in our parish to do some quilting. I would gladly teach, and some have said I should. But the follow-through isn't there. Maybe when I retire I will have energy to do the whole organizing bit.

What a wonderful project and a way to share Q pictures. I chose to use nearby Quadra Island for Q. It is a fun vacation destination that you can see by clicking here. – Margy
