I am loving making these pocket prayer quilts by Estadistica Datos del Mundo. They make for perfect gifts to give to family and friends. She even shares a few Prayer Cards in the description to put into your pocket prayer quilt. I have been keeping my pocket prayer quilt in my no-sew clutch bag. You could even use some of your leftover fabric scraps to create this project.
