Retreat Surprise

I went to a retreat yesterday. Sadly, it was not a quilt retreat. It was for work and because of the size of our group, we met in a nearby church’s multipurpose room. To my pleasant surprise the room doubled as their quilt ministry room. The evidence included a pile of quilts in various stages of completion, ready to go quilt kits on a table, and these fun signs hanging on the wall:

Quilter's Blessing

Old quilters....

I thought both banners added a humorous touch to their workspace.

Another wall hanging was a quilt with blocks made by young children based on 1 Corinthians, chapter 13 “Love is….”:

I loved the simple quilt with visual descriptions of what love is to each child – parents, pets, friends, God, flowers, etc! I work with 4 and 5 year olds at my church. Maybe we could do something similar!
