I'm finishing the binding on a charity quilt. This quilt has been in the works for years. That's not unusual for me. I tend to lose interest and not complete a top until there is a purpose for the quilt.

Pieced by Pam Stahl
Quilted by Sarah Craig
finished June 2013
This top is made with scrappy coin strings. A good mental therapy project. No rules...just sew and square up on occasion. The pattern idea came from here.

Sarah Craig did the machine quilting. Thanks Sarah!
This quilt was created for the Hands 2 Help ministry which Sarah heads up each year. It will be traveling to an orphanage in Ethiopia through Quilts Beyond Borders.
Finishing this quilt is a bit humbling. I am easily overwhelmed when I stop to consider the pain and suffering in this fallen world. I long to do so much more, but don't even know where to begin. So I offer this quilt with love and prayers to God. Asking that He will use my humble offering in a way far bigger than me. That He will use this quilt to comfort and remind a child that He loves them and has plans for them....and will give them hope and a future.
Thank you Lord for allowing me to serve You in ways that come naturally to me. (guess You already knew that!)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lore, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
