Friday Finish-Pocket Prayer Quilts

Here is what I have been working on.  As I was fall cleaning this week, I found all the parts to make
"Pocket Prayer Quilts".  You can contact Quilter's Garden for the pattern at

The quilt is laying next to a 45 mm Rotary Cutter so you can get an idea of how small the Pocket Prayer Quilt finishes.
This is the opposite side with the printed information.
Tucked inside the center of the quilt is a silver cross that you can feel through the fabric.
I purchased the crosses at Hobby Lobby.  I ended up stitching around the printed information because my Heat N Bond Lite failed to hold.  The stitching helped hold the cross in place plus provided a little quilting for the layers.  Since this was my first one, I will bond the printed information to the backing first before sewing it all together.  There is thin batting in the center also.
I keep a jar of 2" squares, so will be using my scraps to make more Pocket Prayer Quilts.
Have a blessed Friday!
Yours in quilting,

  3. Someone brought these up to the chemotherapy waiting room for patients. I have one of them, and I think it was a lovely thoughtful thing to do.

    1. What a great idea for the chemotherapy waiting room. We all need a little prayer in our life. Hope all is well.
