I wasn't going to post this because country blue is probably my last choice in colors. I was trying to work with the stash at my church and it was there. My children laughed when I brought it home.
This is a prayer quilt. A quilter (I use that term loosely about myself), makes the quilt, but without any quilting. The ties are put in but not tied (that's why the safety pins are in it now). When an ill recipient is chosen the quilt is on the altar for a service, then on a table in a corner. Any congregation member who so desires says a prayer as s/he ties a knot. So when the person is under the quilt, he or she is also under our many prayers.
This is my first, but it won't be my last. The next one is on the machine now. I do need to put the ties in this one yet.
This is 'Serendipity' from a book in the library. It was really cool made in more modern fabrics. But an older parishoner will appreciate these colors.
