Prayers & Squares

Did you know that Quilty Pleasures sponsors an outreach ministry named "Prayers & Squares" that meets the third Thursday of every month starting at 6:30pm. Prayers & Squares is an interfaith outreach organization that combines the gift of tied quilt. Unlike many other groups that make quilts for charitable causes, the purpose of Prayers & Squares is not to make and distribute quilts, but to promote through the use of quilts. Our motto is: "It's not about the quilt; it's all about the prayers."
Join us this Thursday...you will be truly blessed!!
