United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) in the past has assembled layettes for babies to be distributed to needy countries around the world.
St. Andrew’s quilting/sewing group supported this outreach by making these baby jackets from scraps of the Prayer Pillow fleece. The baby jacket was just one of the many items needed to complete a layette. UMCOR received these items and assembled the layette kits before shipping to other countries.
When this project was completed our Quilters group made 50 baby jackets with tiny flowers on the lapels and ribbon roses on each side to tie in front.
We strive to give HOPE, in our small way, to some babies in our world.
