Our pastor and his wife started a Bible study group in their home for the people in the subdivision (Great Oaks). The small group met weekly and now it has grown to include pretty much anyone who would like to come. I think we counted over 40 the last time everyone was there.  We still meet weekly in another home in Great Oaks since the pastor and his family have moved (2008) and are serving in a church near Houston.

We had to do something special for them for all they've done for us so we made this signature quilt. I gave everyone a piece of muslin then pieced the top once they were all turned in.  Then several women from the group got together to assemble it. What fun we had!  I continue to kick myself for not taking a picture of the finished product. Instead of our regular study the night we gave them the quilt, they read through each block and verse ... reminisced... cried... laughed. It was truly a privilege to be a part of this project.

I heard about this and have wondered many times what it looked like.  Great idea!  It turned out lovely.
