Quilts For Kids #2

Here is finished quilt #2 for Quilts For Kids. When I started making these, I thought I would just make a couple, but I have to say, I don't think I will be able to STOP! lol I told Skippy the other day that I will continue to do make these quilts for as long as I can.

I am soooo excited that the Women's Ministry at our church will be hosting a "Quilting Bee" on May 1st to participate in this challenge as well. PRAISE THE LORD that we already have 8 women signed up to participate.

Before I mail the quilt out, I write a little note and I ((((HUG)))) it tight and pray over it. Then I pray for the precious one who will be getting it, and then for their family and the doctors. I can not describe in words the feeling that comes over me when I do this. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!

My heart goes out to all of these little darlings that will be receiving the quilts. May God give these families peace and comfort during their illness!

Thank you, ladies! Kat, I didn't choose the colors for the quilt, they came in the quilt kit.

I so enjoy making these! :> )

It's such a brilliant idea I wish there was a scheme like that over here.

How awesome! I'm going to have to read the #1 post so I can learn how you found out about this. As a mom to an autistic son (asperger's) I really appreciate the time, love and prayer you put into these quilts.


Blessings,
Mary
