    John's Quilt

    Hi y'all. I thought I'd share what happened when I started playing with leftover charm squares. I gifted this to our friend John who goes to the same church as we do and who also plays bass in one of the worship teams. John is on dialysis twice a week and tells me it's always cold in the room so I made him a quilt. He loves it and says it's been a great way to share the love of Jesus with the other patients. His favorite color is red and I just happened to have a red piece of flannel in my stash that was EXACTLY the size I needed! I used the scripture verse John 3:16 underneath the cross. Thanks for looking.

    You did a wonderful job on it. I love it!!! The red is especially meaningful in more ways than one. God bless your friend.

    How kind of you. My Mom was on dialysis for 16 yrs. She started making quilts for the other patients but then my Dad started and it has continuued now for the 5 years since she died. You know there are so many people that have to endure things everyday and when someone recognizes and acts it just makes the world a nicer place to live. Thank you and what a neat way to share the cross.

    That is beautiful. Your friend will treasure it and I love that it has become a "conversation starter" during his treatments.

    It's a wonderful quilt. Yes, the design is wonderful, but better yet you thought about your friend and made something you knew would be meaningful for him. That is love! And that love shows in the quilt. Special at all sorts of levels!
