Prayer Blankets

Our church St Stanislaus in Bandera and its mission St Victors in Lakehills, Texas both have prayer blanket ministries. The blankets are mostly small, usually less than a fabric length squared. They are prayerfully made, blessed, then distributed my ministers of the sick and bereavement. They come with a little booklet that says, "You are covered with prayer" on the front, and sometimes a hand beaded rosary if the person is Catholic made by "His Holy Face Chaplet Makers" also from St. Stans. It took me two weeks but I made 24 blankets with a portion of my stash. I like to put crosses on mine, but everyone makes them different. I Still have some organization to do in my beloved sewing room but now..... I think I have some room for some new fat quarters.
