Proud Of Our Youth

I was at a study group meeting at church tonight and the parking lot was so crowded on a Thursday night.  It brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart.  Sadly, I have belonged to churches which did not have that many on Sunday morning, but we had several groups meeting and eager participation.

One such group was our young people and the youth minister.  They are going on their second annual mission trip and have been hard at work planning and earning the funds needed to pay for it.  It was so awesome to see so many eager and happy faces crowding the room.  I was there to drop off the following donation I made for the auction:

This quilt is 18 x 24 inches and is shades of green, periwinkle and white.  I designed it and hand signed it and it nearly didn’t make it out the door since my Mom wanted us to keep it.  lol  I used a fabric scrap from my stash as the focus fabric and cannot get more of it, so since I have literally a 10 inch square of it left, I will try to replicate this in a smaller size so Mom can have one, too!  Don’t tell!

  1. Your Mother will be so surprised!


    • She lives in my home wiwth me so i think I will, once I find the right similar fabrics, wait until she’s in bed and then hang it for her to discover. It’ll be a few days before I can do it, but I think you’re right! 🙂

    How wonderful that your church has a vibrant youth group. So few of them do. And that’s not a new problem – it was like even when I was in high school (and remember, you & I are about the same age, so it was many years ago!).

    May I copy your design? I am part of a prayer quilt ministry at our church and I think would make a beautiful prayer quilt. Thank you!


    • Yes! Certainly! Thank you for asking! I would appreciate it if you would share the source of the design with those you share the quilt and design with. Blessings to you, Martha
