We have a small group of quilters who meet weekly at Grace United Methodist Church. We make quilts for Relay for Life, the first baby born at the local hospital, and quilts for special causes and  occasions.

This year, 2010, we gave a quilt to the hospital for the New Year’s baby as our first project. The next project was to make a special quilt for a special quilter in our group. Elsie and Frank are celebrating their 50th anniversary in February and we wanted to surprise them with a small quilt.

We purchased a panel with Bible verses that could be cut into 3 1/2 inch squares. We used the squares for the centers in 15  square in a square blocks. The 16th block had an embroidered square with their names and anniversary date.

We presented Elsie with the quilt at our Thursday evening meeting on February 11.
