Pin #6: Pocket Prayer Quilts - You may have seen the full-size prayer quilts I've been working on. I love them, but they are not always convenient in terms of time needed to make them and their portability. When I was searching Pinterest for pattern ideas, I found these "Pocket Prayer Quilts". They are a quick project that still has meaning. There are multiple pins of this idea, but my favorite is this mini-9-patch idea. There are no instructions with this pin - just the picture - so I made my 9-patch from 1 1/2" squares, so that it finishes as a 3" square. I plan to make up several of these and keep on hand to tuck into a sympathy card or hand to a friend experiencing a tough time.
Each mini-quilt has a metal cross sewn inside (purchased at my local Christian book store for 50 cents each), and comes with a card with the following instructions:
This pocket prayer quilt was made especially for you to slip in your pocket or purse. Throughout the day, when your fingers touch the cross tucked inside, be mindful of God's grace for you. Keep it as a tangible symbol of God's peace.

I have four pins left on my "to do" list for this challenge, but only one more day off work before the end of the month. I better kick it in gear!
