Quilt Project

We, Grace church, are together for good. We have our own plan to create a quilt for the community of our future. Just as a quilt is seamed together to bring warmth, let us use this time to reflect on all the ways God binds our lives “together for good.”

Grace quilt from 1896

The Inspiration:

This red and white quilt hangs outside the church office and was created in 1896 by the Ladies’ Aid Society to raise money for missions. After 124 years, it’s time to make another quilt – not as a fundraiser – but as part of our legacy to the church during this difficult year.

Here are some sample fabric blocks to show how the total of all sides cannot exceed 20 inches:

The goal for this quilt is to have every household of Grace represented. Please claim your spot by filling out the form linked below and indicate how you would like to be represented on the quilt:

Quilt Drop Box

Drop Box for quilt blocks – folks can drop their finished blocks off any time! We suggest placing your fabric block in a plastic bag before dropping it off to keep it safe!
