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 review: My Mother's Quilts is a magnificent devotional. Although I am not a quilter myself, I was able to savor every little bit of this. My grandmother and my great-grandmother both were quilters. We had one quilt in our family that was special if you say it was the kind of quilt you cuddle in when you weren't feeling well or if you had a bad dream or were scared of something. That quilt somehow cheered us all up. This devotional shows the amount of love and dedication that is put in to a quilt and it truly is amazing. It starts with a Bible verse and it also has a prayer starter. Sometimes, my mind is boggled and I am worn down from day to day life and some of these Bible verse's have really hit home for me. It is also really nice to have that prayer starter. I also really love that the book includes photographs of beautiful quilts. I love that I can actually read a few at a time because they are so great. Since, I also have a toddler running around this book is perfect for me. I hope you will be able to pick up a copy of this book yourself as it would make an amazing gift.
