We are still plugging away on our prayer quilt! Her baby shower is this Saturday and I am hoping to get it finished by then! I have been asked why we are hand quilting this quilt instead of machine quilting it. This quilt is for a lady in our church, so I wanted it to be a gift from all of us, that we have all worked on. If I machine quilted it, I would do all of the work (and it would take me a few days to a week, I'm slow). But by hand quilting it, it gives all of us a chance to put a part of our heart and time into the quilt and show her how much we lover her! Not to mention the fellowship is great!
We had five ladies and two preteens working on the quilt this week, our quilt frame is so small we had to take turns! LOL
I'm hoping to get the quilt finished on Friday. My goals on Friday is to have some ladies hand quilting, one lady cutting out the binding and getting it ready to be attached, and if we have enough ladies show up, have a couple of ladies to start sewing the pinwheel quilt together (another prayer quilt) I'm hosting the quilt along this week. If you live in the area and want to come and quilt with us, let me know! I live in the area of Arlington, TX.
