My church has a ministry called "Prayers & Squares". Quilts are made for someone in need of comfort, and ties are put in. When the quilt is selected, people say prayers for the recipient so that when they received the quilt, every tie represents a prayer said just for them. I do at least minimal machine quilting to make sure the quilts stay together in the wash.

Kristin, a teen from our church, was a car accident where she fractured a vertebre in her neck but did not injure her spinal cord.  She spent several weeks in bed, then a long time in a brace to keep her bones from injuring the spinal cord while they healed.  This quilt was made in her favorite colors

This is great project! We are trying to put together something like this at our church. Would you be willing to share this pattern and how you got started?

Thank you!

Great project!  I too put prayers into each quilt I make.  I believe I have benefited more from those prayers than the recipents of the quilts.  Keep up the good work.

Prayers & Squares is www.prayerquilt.org.  This pattern is using Sally Schneider's technique.  nwww.sallyschneider.com/magictriangle.htm

I love the Prayers & Squares ministry.  I am not going on any mission trips to Haiti, but I can make quilts!  When I want to try a new pattern or technique, it often finds it's way into a prayer quilt.
