I finally started going to a new church, after many years of looking for that right one that was not too stuffy or controlled only by a handful of people who don't listen to the younger members.
And I found a church that is very active and friendly, with a young pastor who is completely full of energy who "gets it" that some people don't really know how they feel about religion or what they believe in exactly, yet they know they believe in God and Jesus. He does not try to tell us that only one way is the right way. So, I like this place a lot. Even my son liked going there on Mother's Day.
So, I thought I would make a quilt for his young family (he has a nice wife and two little girls) to celebrate all that they bring to our community. They do so much outside of the church and that means a lot to many of us here where I live.
I generally make one block every other night and will have a total of twelve when I am done. Then I will make pieced blocks to mix in with the embroidered ones. Aren't they gorgeous? I love them so much that I may make some extras to put into frames for people who want them.
I'll post some more tomorrow. The blocks are a lot of fun to make, and I feel happy as they stitch out. They will love them, I am sure.
