Real men really quilt

To celebrate the congregation’s 125th anniversary, Gilbert [Iowa] Lutheran Church made 125 quilts for Lutheran World Relief. To include all members, the 125th quilt committee hosted an event called “Lutheran Men Really Do Tie Quilts.” The 30 men and boys tied 24 quilts, and some are asking “to do this again,” said member Cindy Kruckenberg. The quilts will be blessed at a September worship service and sent to LWR.
