My in-laws have some friends who recently returned from being mission presidents in Omaha. They collected ties and pieces of fabrics from the elders and sisters who were missionaries while they were out there. They also had them all write their names on pieces of fabric.
They asked me to turn the ties and pieces of fabrics into (a) quilt(s).
It's a big project. There are over 300 missionary blocks. But, it is really fun so far. I started working on the sister missionary blocks first.
They are having a mission reunion the first part of October, so they would like part of the quilt(s) finished by then. I have a couple of ideas for layout, so far, but we'll see how it ends up once I get all the blocks finished.
Keep checking back! Photos coming soon! :)
