Blessing of the Quilts

We had our annual blessing of the quilts at church tonight. I love how it is incorporated into the "Thanksgiving Eve" service. At a time when we are giving thanks, we are grateful that we can offer these quilts to local charities for distribution.

Some will go to our local homeless shelter, some will go to the VA hospital and some we will save for our church family in time of need.

We have a small group of ladies from our church who help out. Many cannot sew, but they can pin the quilt layers and add yarn ties to complete the quilts. It is definitely a project that includes many hands and are given with love each year.

The leader of our group, Judy was present with her children and I couldn't resist snapping this picture of her. I am so happy to call her my friend.
