Nancy Quillen
Ministry Leader


Our story

It began with a vision of one person — Nancy Quillen. Her dream was to establish a ministry where creative skills are used to help others who are experiencing hardships. A member of First Baptist Church Melbourne, Nancy Quillen, along with six other volunteers, organized the ministry called Patchwork of Grace in September 2003. Defining our procedures, we set forth the following as our mission:

To extend a sense of care and comfort to people suffering from serious illnesses;
To extend a sense of protective caring and hope to homeless people, battered women,and migrant workers’ children;
To extend a sense of love to neglected children and babies of crisis pregnancies;
To extend a sense of security to children arriving for emergency medical care.

During its first year, Patchwork of Grace distributed 400 quilts. To date, 2,500 quilts and numerous handcrafted items have been delivered to individuals and organizations. Furthermore, we rejoice that our ministry has spread to otherstates and countries, such as Iraq and Romania.
