My Mother's Quilts

My Mother's Quilt
Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith
Written By: Ramona Richards

About the Book:

quilt is love that serves a purpose. 

The devotions in My Mother’s Quilts are inspired by family heirloom quilts, some more than 100 years old. With humor and sincerity, Ramona Richards shares her memories and lessons learned from the quilters whose legacies live on in their work. Rich, personal, sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, each reading provides a lesson and encouragement from the faithful women who crafted the quilts. Together, these devotions depict the enduring legacy of faith, family, and beloved traditions. Includes full color photographs of each of the 30 quilts!

My Thoughts:
Whenever a new book arrives at my doorstep, I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning.  I am filled with anticipation as I open the package and eagerly read the back cover.  I will admit once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down.  I enjoyed the rich color pages and beautiful pictures of the handmade quilts.  I have always been intrigued by quilts, one time I was feeling ambitious and thought I could make a patchwork quilt out of a lot of scraps of material that my great grandmother used to make me outfits when I was a little girl.  I don't think I went any further than gathering all the scraps.  A lot more goes into making quilts than I ever realized. I enjoyed reading this book and hearing about how each quilt had a special meaning.  I also like how the author linked it to something important with regards to faith or our spiritual journey. This devotional would be great for somebody who is busy.  The devotions are short and sweet and to the point, but so deep and profound. I was grateful to have the opportunity to read this book.  The neat thing about this book is that they are currently hosting a contest, and one lucky winner will have the chance to win one of the quilts that are featured in this book. Enter for your chance to win....a Friendship Quilt
