Prayer Quilt Ministry

We met together yesterday for the prayer quilt ministry.  I did not take many pictures though!  Only two in fact!
We had a very low turnout so not much was accomplished, but I did get the pinwheel quilt basted!
I forgot to make the label so I do need to go back and add that to the corner before quilting it.  I also ran out of curved safety pins since I had half of them still on the granny square quilt.  I guess I need to buy more if I'm going to be using my pins for the prayer quilt ministry, because now I don't have any for my personal quilts!  LOL
I think hand quilting is a great family project, here is a picture of Kristi quilting with her daughter and step son on the other quilt.
Caleb said he was bored so I sent him in there and had Miss Debra teach him how to hand quilt!  Never say in my presence you are bored because I'll put you to work!  That is a lesson my nephew has learned and I think Caleb is starting to learn!
I have a really bad sinus headache today, so I am not sure how much I will get done today, although I do have a quilt block that I'm  hoping to finish, I'll share it with ya'll as soon as I do!  Of course, I also need to make my quilt label and then get started on quilting the pinwheel quilt!
Have a great day ya'll!

It's looking good!! Headaches....hmmmpf. I woke with one for the 5th day in a row this morning! It's so hard to get around them and keep busy!

Your projects are moving right along! Have you considered spray basting? I haven't pinned in years and I assume it will work ok with your quilting frames.

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

I love your pretty quilt...how fun! Yeah, my kids know that too. Never tell mom you're bored 'cause she's got a whole list of chores that can be done! :)

I've just posted this week's new Homemaking Linkup and would love to have you join, if you haven't already.

You've pulled together the pinwheel quilt so fast! It is lovely. What a wonderful fellowship time for your prayer quilt ministry. Hope you're feeling better.

Hope you feel better and can enjoy some stitching today. I love to see your photos of kids learning to hand quilt! Thanks for linking up!

Such pretty fabrics in your pinwheel quilt. Work is always a great cure for boredom.

Yes, if someone mentions being bored I find something for them to do. Love that you are teaching the younger kids how to quilt.
