‘Lite’ Quilts? Makes Sense for Africa

There is an emphasis in overweight America these days on “lite.”

But “lite” quilts?

Yes, light quilts when they are being used as night coverings in the Congo of Africa. It’s hot there.

“So we are not putting a regular batting in the quilts. We are just putting used, thin flannel sheets.

“They’re not going to be heavy and hot,” noted Lori Miller of Winner.

She’s the wife of Bruce Miller, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Winner.

The church has been making four quilts the past few months for the children of a missionary couple of the national American Baptist Churches organization, which the church in Winner is affiliated with.

It’s a project that Miller worked-on at a time  when a group of local Winner quilt enthusiasts met recently.
