Quilting for others

 The quilt top is finished. It’s waiting to be assembled and tied by the quilters at my church.

Every month 7-10 women gather and haul things from the closet and a corner in a Sunday School room so they can work. 

One person sews the binding, a few others make a sandwich (quilt top, batting, and backing) and few more slide needles up and through to ‘tie’ the quilt. Someone will cut squares and make packages for others to sew the tops at home. 

In October, the finished quilts are shipped to Lutheran World Relief where they are handed out to those who need them. 

It’s a fun project and I’m glad to be a small part in helping someone stay warm.
