That's why I propose calling them "grace quilts" instead.
Here's one "grace quilt" I made for a woman in poverty who is about to give birth by C-section. It was a surprise how easily this came together. Just cut and stitch, hardly any labor at all (ha!)
All winter, our religious fellowship has been making
I whipped up this grace quilt
because I had this adorable fabric for backing (a gift).
(after discovering that I didn't have enough solid flannel to finish the top, and that Jo-Ann's had entirely changed their color lines in solid flannel, I realized I had no choice but to surrender to "what is"!)
I whipped up this grace quilt out of what was left in my flannel collection. I literally had only one 10" x 10" square of flannel in my house when I was done. Grace just happened as the pieces came together, and this top is now quilted and keeping someone warm.
I love the thought of introducing beauty and the surprise of being gifted into people's lives. I hope my quilts communicate the joy in making and connecting with "someone-out-there" who may appreciate these scraps of beauty on several layers.
Halfway through my latest grace quilt, I realized it was suited for a dear friend. More soon!
Thank you for reading my post(s), another form of grace.
