Lessons from a Quilt Square: The Next Generation


Hannah and I calculated the other day that between the two of us and Rachel, we’ve made 25 baby quilts in the past three years. That’s been so many hours of working, planning, and sewing together, talking, listening to sermons, and watching movies while we did so.

We’ve hoped to bless those bringing the next generation into the world, and also those babies that make up the next generation.

And more recently, with Mrs. C’s help, the next batch of quilters is being raised up as well.

Candace and Grace have started learning how to sew, and with the large amount of bundles of joy coming to our church, we enlisted their help.

So they worked hard, sewing and re-sewing seams, ripping and re-aligning, until they had a quilt top.

Then they pinned the layers and tied them together.

Hannah and I finished the binding and delivered it to our friends in a nearby Emirate.

They did a wonderful job, don’t you think?

    My Hannah is a recipient of one of the gorgeous quilts! She sleeps with it every night. 🙂 You girls have been a great blessing to many families in the church. It (both the quilt and learning to quilt) is a great gift to pass on to the next generation.
