Welcome to the Quilting Board!
How inspiring & heartwarming! All the prayers that go into 1 quilt...in addition to the work. How wonderful the group is!

My church has a Prayer Shawl Ministry. We do knitting, crocheting and quilted shawls. I am currently working on a quilted rectangle made of squares of a breast cancer awareness ribbon pattern and solid pinks and whites. One of the recurrent themes to keep in mind is that you pray with all stitching. You may want to work your shawl in themes of three also( for the Trinity) such as 3 blocks, 3 colors, 3 designs. Just another way to be friends in the Lord!
Beautiful...especially the color (my fav). the possibilities are endlessOriginally Posted by Quilting G
Here's one I made for my sister in 2008 when she was preparing to be ordained as a minister. I had just started quilting. It is held shut by a heart-shaped button and loop. In retrospect, I wish I had made it longer, but ran out of fabric - and I think I might not have used batting. She was sweet and wore it anyway.
