Prayer Quilt

I have long had a passion for healing quilts. I have mostly been involved in exhibits and projects that make health care facilities an easier place for patients and their families or using quilts to raise money for terrible diseases. But recently, I have had a different experience. I made a prayer quilt for a friend at church. I used a simple log cabin design with plenty of white space for people to write their thoughts and prayers. For two weeks the quilt was out in the gathering place for people to add their words.

I did not spend any time photographing this piece. So here is my really informal photo of the piece just before it was delivered to our precious sister.
