The interior of Living Word Lutheran Church in Katy was recently transformed for a dedication ceremony and blessing of quilts and kits for Lutheran World Relief. Hand-tied quilts decorated all the pews. Baby care kits filled with baby clothes, diapers, and blankets were on display, in addition to 100 red backpacks filled with school supplies. Volunteers of all ages joined the fun after the service as they packed the quilts and kits into boxes to be delivered to the warehouse in Baltimore, MD. From there, they will be distributed to people in need who are located in areas of natural disaster or countries recovering from war. The quilts are used as wall dividers in refugee camps, mattresses and blankets to keep bodies warm, or just for comfort when someone is feeling alone.

These gifts of comfort were the project of Piecemakers, a community quilting group that meets three times a month at Living Word Lutheran Church in Katy. If you would like to join the group for a work session or donate fabric, thread, or bedding, call the church office at 281-392-2300. Work sessions are scheduled on April 10 at 9:30 a.m., and April 18 and 23 at 1 pm. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
