Carol Rodine, leader of the quilting group from GETHSEMANE LUTHERAN CHURCH in Hopkins, Minn., says they immediately recognized the fabric pieces in the cover photo of the current Quilt & Kit Ministry Guide. It came from a local children’s store where they get material for their quilts.
“Beginning in 2015 the owner of the [store] began to offer bolt ends and leftover bolts of woven and knit fabric to us. We have become very familiar with the patterns and colors in all of that fabric,” says Carol.
The quilt traveled all the way to Lebanon and is now comforting a refugee from Syria. In the photo, the young woman holds the quilt and a Personal Care Kit.
