Book Review - My Mother's Quilts: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith by Ramona Richards

Recently, I won a copy of this wonderful book on a bloggers Giveaway.   I love Quilts and I knew that I would enjoy this book!  =) 
I dont quilt....but my Grandmother did.  She made me two Quilts which I treasure! 

My Mother's Quilts:  Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith is filled with wonderful photos and Devotions.  I enjoyed each chapter!  The chapters are short - they tell a story of family, Love and Community.  The color photos are stunning and the quilts are beautiful!
I'm so glad that I have a copy of this book.  I'm going to refer back to it often because the bible verses and quotes are lovely.



More about this Book:
From the Authors website 


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.
