Traveling Quilt Fundraiser

This is a well-traveled idea that helped raise funds for mission projects.

The idea was to sew a quilt with squares that are like pockets, the person (s) with the quilt, put money in a pocket, sew it shut and pass it on. The quilts are sent with a needle, thread and a list of the ladies in the church (we included all ladies, not just the ones in the ladies group). When you received the bag, you remove the quilt, of course, fill a pocket, sew the pocket shut, cross out your name and pass it on to someone else on the list. Each quilt has its own list of names, so no one should get it twice or be missed. When all pockets were filled, or it as gone around to all the ladies. The money is counted and given to the selected project.

This can be done within a congregation or sent out to different congregations in your circuit.
