Prayer Quilt Presentation

We worked on our prayer quilt some more on Friday at my house.    Pippi helped me set up the quilt rack, she thought it was a great trampoline!
 Precious knew the correct place to sit, he was ready to help also!  I wish I had gotten a picture of Pippi greeting the ladies on top of the quilt while they were trying to sew!  She is the friendliest cat I have ever seen!
We had four ladies including me and one preteen, Kayla come on Friday.  This was Siousxie's and Marie's first time to hand quilt.  Miss Debra is teaching them how to hand quilt.
Tabitha and Valerie also came, but they worked on their postage stamp quilts.  They were arguing who got to use my hand crank!  LOL  Their dad is going to buy them one, but we'll have to wait until April to get it for them.  The lady lives in Plano which is only one hour away, but right now that is just too far to get it.
Tabitha got to use my Redeye 66.  She worked on making four patches.
 Valerie got ahead of herself and made a 16 patch, now she needs to go back and make all o her four patches!
This prayer quilt is for Skye.  She has had a very hard couple of years.  She is pregnant with their sixth child and has had some heart aches the past two years.  We felt like she needed a prayer to wrap herself in.  I'm sorry we only got two pictures.  Today was her baby shower, the quilt is not finished but we still wanted to present it to her today.
 She is an amazing woman who puts her complete trust in the Lord.
Here are some of the posts if you want to see the progress we made while making this quilt, http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/search/label/prayer%20quilt%20ministry
Here is the label we put on the back of the quilt.
It says "quilted with love from the Kingdom Baptist Prayer Quilt Ministry, 2013" and our theme verse:
James 5:16  "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
We had to take the quilt back so we can try to finish it up for her!
Happy quilting,

I am linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching.

Looks like you had a lovely busy get together.........I love working on quilt labels, I always think a label makes a quilt so much more special.

Love your quilts and your ministy. I too am working on something similar with fleece. I was wondering how you made your labels. I would love to make labels for our blankets too. If you don't mind please share with me.

Thanks and many blessings.

Praise God for you ministry. I too have a group doing the same thing with fleece. I was wondering how you made your labels. Can you please share with me.

Thank you and many blessings.
