    Missionary quilt

    It's really wonky so don't look closely, but my friends and I made this quilt for one of our number who is a missionary in Zambia. She was moved to tears when we presented it to her and hopefully, when she wraps herself in it, she will remember how much we all love and respect her. We used Rhonda's templates. (Thanks, Rhonda!) I should have thought to take better pictures . . .

    You did wonderful work. I am sure your missionary friend will really be comforted by your love when she is a long way from home.

    I love it! And I love the idea that you made a quilt for your missionary. They sacrifice so much to work for the Lord. We need to support them.
