Making a Christian-themed prayer quilt for an infant or child is so right on so many levels and for so many reasons.
The perfect project for Right to Life groups - they make beautiful gifts for a mother to be. (And why not make one for mama, too? She'll need your prayers as well) Prayer quilts for children who are suffering from a grave illness or who have had a terrible injury that will keep them home-bound for a while are gifts of God's love, too. Any child who is ill or suffering will have a hard time focusing on the normal day to day amusements of today's children, but beautiful images of Our Lord and His Mother Mary will form lasting prayer images in their hearts and minds.
Don't doubt His power to reach a little one through a simple image.
As a matter of fact, a Christian themed prayer quilt is perfect for any infant or child whose natural curiosity will lead them to the Lord. The images will stay with them for a lifetime. And as unusual and beautiful quilts, you can be sure that they will be treasured heirlooms for generations to come.
