My Mother's Quilts: Devotions from a Legacy of Needlework Book Review #MyMothersQuilts #FlyBy
My Mother's Quilts: Devotions from a Legacy of Needlework is a devotional book by Ramona Richards that is about love, legacy, tradition, family and faith. This book features thirty different heirloom quilts, some that are over 100 years old that have been handed down throughout the author's family for generations. These have been made by the author's mother and grandmother, every stitch done with love and care. The short, but sweet devotions are personal stories, memories, and lessons from the author, each one having a full color photo of a quilt, the story title, the quilts name, scripture, and a "prayer starter" that goes with it.
My mother-in-law is a fine quilter. She made my husband and I a gorgeous quilt with dolphins for our wedding present. It is absolutely breathtaking and we will cherish it always. She has also made my kids quilts as well and these will be handed down and kept for generations and generations.
When my daughter Tatiana was sick in the hospital she usually would get a blanket of some sort as a gift from a stranger we had never met. They created a piece of warmth and beauty to comfort the ill. Some of these blankets were quilts. These I will also keep since she treasured them when she was still with us on this earth and as a token of the gift givers kindness.
I love homemade and handmade gifts. They are so special and one of a kind. Each one a symbol of love, devotion, and work for the person gifted them. They really are priceless.
My Mother's Quilts is a book that speaks to the heart and soul. I love reading the stories and looking at the pictures of the gorgeous quilts.
