Prayer Quilts

I'm starting a Prayer Quilt Ministry in my church. So far, I have about 10 members who are interested in joining me. We will have our first work day tomorrow. These are 2 quilts I made in the last couple of weeks, and will be going to the ladies who have volunteered to do the hand sewing of the binding, and they will stitch in embroidery floss in the center of each square.

Members of the church will let us know when someone is in need of special prayers, and we will have the congregant tie each knot with a prayer, and sign a card that will accompany the quilt. I've seen this work in other churches, and I'm excited to see how it goes in ours.
