    How thoughtful of you to do this for your friend. I have never heard of a passage quilt.

    Beautiful, so good of your group to make this for your friend. Passage quilts are a very nice thing for people to do for others.

    I have never heard of a Passage Quilt. Does a family member receive the quilt after the passing of their loved one?

    It is a beautiful quilt and your friend is going to love having it near her. What a sweet spirit you have. God bless you beyond measure.

    God Bless your ladies of your club. I do donations of quilts also, but have never tried the string quilt you pictured. Sounds like a good idea. I'm not too far down the road from you. I'm in Kenosha.

    That is so special. I read your post and started crying. When my husbands Mom passed, I would not let them take my MIL out of our home with her head covered or didn't want them putting her in a bag. I had taken care of her 24-7 for a year. She deserved the respect. How much better a quilt over her would have been. Thanks so much for caring. You touched my heart.

This needs squaring and binding yet.

    We make a lot of Passage quilts and we use this pattern for them now. A Passage quilt is used to cover a body bag as it is removed from a home, hospital or nursing home. We have given them to nursing homes, assisted livings, hospitals, and funeral homes in all the communities surrounding us. Our goal is to show the families that someone cares about their loss and hope they will be comforted by that. In the nursing homes, when our friends pass, the residents don't turn away when they are taken from the home but turn and bow their heads in respect. A quilt makes it a kinder gentler sight.

    You have a beautiful heart. I've never heard of a passage quilt before, but I am going to tell my sister about them. She worked as a hospice nurse practitioner and now, at the age of 69, she is working as a minister. I'm sure she will love the idea. Thank you for sharing.

    I am very sorry your friend is so ill. Saying prayers for her. And what a wonderful thing you do by making/or quilting the Passage quilts. I never heard of them before and will tell our quilt guild about it.

    What a lovely quilt, and a beautiful idea. I have never heard of Passage Quilts, but maybe I can find time to make some myself. Thanks for sharing.

    Deb - let everyone know that the quilt is beautiful! Besides that, you all made a special gift for someone special! I think you have a wonderful purpose behind the quilt gifts to the hospitals, homes, etc. Bless you all!

    This is a cheerful, hopeful quilt. And passage quilts. A beautiful idea.
