Info on the quilt

Yesterday I put a picture of the 100th anniversary quilt on my blog. I would like to tell you a little bit about this quilt.

Each family was given a plain square of material so they could make a square for the quilt. Some did embroidery, some brought it to a shop who did it for them, some painted their square, some made a regular quilt square etc. so we had a wide variety of different squares to work with.

A group of ladies got together to sew the squares together. We have a few experienced quilters in our church so that helped a lot. After we had the quilt finished we took it to a lady for the quilting. She quilted each square and did a great job. She would not take any money for doing it but requested we make diapers for a mission she helps support. So we bought lots of flannel and we are busy making diapers.

Something that I noticed while making the quilt was how many different squares there were and yet how well they all went together and how they complimented each other. It reminded me how we, as the body of Christ, are different from one another yet we are one in Christ. We all have different gifts which we bring to a church and we all compliment each other in the process.

Our church did a quilt some years back for our 75th and we noticed the same thing. It really is a great representation of the church.
