Inspiration – Today, Tomorrow & Forever

The Quilt That Knew where It Was Going:


The Youth Group at our church just got back from a mission trip to Williamsburg, Kentucky. Prior to the trip I was asked to help create a project for the high school kids could make and take with them. I explained Christian symbolism and gave them quilt squares. The resulting designs were amazing. Silva Watkins pieced it and I quilted it. I thought it could be hung in the center in Kentucky. On arrival there was no place to hang it and the kids had no idea what to do with the quilt. Hannah was told to take it with her and see if she could give it away. The third day they were repainting a bedroom for an older lady who had recently had a house fire. The woman explained that in the bedroom had been a quilt for which she had won a prize. After the fire she salvaged only enough fabric from it to make a pillow. Upon hearing the story Hannah got the youth’s quilt and gave it to her. She explained the symbols and they both cried. The quilt was started a week before the fire. I have learned that sometimes projects have a destination that we do not know about. It’s a God thing.
