Tropical Tiles Heartstrings Quilt
This little beauty which I've decided to name "Tropical Tiles" was put together by Anna Robillard and put together (from the borders out) by the rest of the ladies at the beginning of this year. It was blessed during a Sunday service. the ties are extra long, so prayers may be tied into it by doctors, nurses, visitors, etc so that comfort might be gotten from the knots (prayers) you feel in the ties.
We got an emergency request for a 47-48 yr old woman with leukemia, from a member of Heartstrings quilt Project (yahoo group)- Mavie Quarles. I offered to send this one, since it had no home. I mailed it off to Jackie L in Maine today. She is a registered nurse at a medical center, in the adult cardiac intensive care unit, has gone on numerous healthcare missions to other countries, just the kind of women you really respect and care about. Hope if brings some peace and comfort to you ,Jackie. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Mavie.
