Quilting from 6 to 96

 A couple of weeks ago while having lunch with my brother John, he told me about a project that parishioners in his church worked on a few years ago.  Folks from 6 to 96 years of age gathered to create quilts to donate to a children's hospital as part of their Lenten program.

As one parishioner wrote, "Lots of people had donated fabric, and many had donated funds to help us buy other needed materials.  It really felt like it brought us all together, young and old, those who sew, and those who don't, all to provide for babies in need. "

The completed quilts made one stop on the way to the hospital, adorning St. Rose Parish Church in northern New Hampshire for Easter Sunday, where the loving work of so many hands and hearts became part of the Easter joy and celebration.

A Blessed and Happy Easter

and a

Happy Passover for my Jewish readers!
