a request for prayer...

It's raining today. I dodged the raindrops while running errands, then updated my etsy shop and am now having Greek-ish salad for lunch before starting the after school routine. Pretty ordinary.

I had a call from Rita, our church sectratory, to tell me that a lady from our church was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It really stopped me in my tracks.
The decision was made that a quilt is needed to wrap her in warmth and love... it will be available on Sunday for the congregation to sign. I was honored that Rita asked me for a quilt. I think the one I chose will be perfect... the signatures will become part of the design, just as this diagnosis is part of God's design  for this lady's life.
I'd love if you could remember her in prayer.

{Also, does anyone know what type of permanent pen would be suitable for writing on a quilt? Thanks for your input.}

Your fabric store or maybe even walmart should have pigma type pens for writing on fabric. I used them on my daughter's wedding signature quilt.

Prayers for your friend!

Yes, like Sara said a pigma pen. After signing, you need to iron over the signature to lock it in, so it doesn't wash out. I'll keep your friend in my prayers. ;-> Toni Anne

yes a pgma pen and of course prayers. The quilt is beautiful and she will love it and feel the love that surrounds her.

Kim. I just prayed for this lady and for you too. Only God knows how much your writing encourages people...myself included.

I will be praying. I lost my Daddy to liver cancer over 7 years ago and the small quilt that my parents' church gave him is a special blanket in our home now. It gave him warmth on those days when he was so ill. What a blessing you are to her! **hugs**

iron the fabric onto freezer paper, it makes it easier to sign on the fabric
