    We started a quilt club at my church and this is our first quilt that we have made together. We already have several more planned but this one if for a women who as Alzheimer and is in a nursing home. She was a long time member of our church. We go next week to deliver it I hope it brings her warmth and comfort

    We do this at my church and it is so wonderful! We love doing it and the recipients are a delight! Our labels all say "from our hands to your heart". Enjoy this special mission field.

    What a wonderful gesture. I've always wanted to start a quilting club at my church, but wasn't sure how it would go over...now that I see this, I think I am more inspired to do it.

    Thank you!

    Thanks everyone! We worked really hard on it.

    Frugalfabrics, our quilt club was in planning stage for about 6 months because it was never the right time to start it lol. We finnaly started in January and it has been a true blessing! We have quilters from all stages, and we even drew in a few ladies that do not belong or go to our church. So say I say we have a 2 direction ministry. One going out (the quilts going out to people) and one coming in (quilt club members that are coming in!)
    I hope you do start one its wonderful
