Synopsis: Inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts, each devotion in My Mother’s Quilts shares the enduring legacy of faith, family, and tradition in our lives. Rich, personal, sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, readers will find their own lives reflected in the author’s memories and the lessons and encouragements drawn from the quilters whose legacy lives on in their work. Woven through it all is the message of God’s grace and faithfulness, as strong as the bonds of the generations and as comforting as the oldest and softest quilt that your grandmother ever sewed. Beautiful, four-color photos of each quilt are included.

Review: As you can see below, the pictures in this book are amazing. That alone would have been enough reason for me to enjoy it...just to flip through and look at all the wonderful pictures. 

But this little book is so much more than just the pictures. Each devotional tells the story of an individual quilt, and includes a prayer starter of a sentence or two, as well as a Bible verse. I read through the entire book in one sitting, but will also go back and use it as a daily devotional guide.

My grandmother was a quilter, and I have a couple of her quilts in my home, so that makes this book even more special to me. It will have a place of honor on our coffee table, where it will no doubt get picked up often and looked at by visitors.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**
