The Holy Comforters quilting group
at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
in Springfield, Virginia
works hard from Jan - April making quilts.
This year it was 112 quilts for LWR
and 40 children's quilts.
traditionally on Mother's Day weekend,
they are draped across the backs of the pews
in the sanctuary.
There is something particularly
cozy and welcoming on this weekend.
Even the spot for the pastor
and worship helpers get a "draping."
They partner with Lutheran World Relief
as organizations that distribute the quilts.
The quilts are prayed over and blessed
before they are boxed for shipping.
Each one has been made
with love and sent with love.
Some are for purchase to help
defray the cost for batting and materials.
Thanks- Mary Lion for the hard work
and organizing this group
to make the world a bit brighter
in many far away places!
