Inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts, each devotion in My Mother's Quilts depicts the enduring legacy of faith, family and tradition. Rich, personal, sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, each reading provides a lesson and encouragement from the faithful women who crafted the quilts. Full-color photographs of each quilt show the style and artistry of each beautiful work. The quilts, sewn by several generations over more than one-hundred years, are as unique and lovely as the hands that created them. The oldest was buried during the Civil War to keep it safe and the author’s mother created the newest in the last years of her life.

PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A little love in every stitch.June 20, 2016PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is something comforting about a quilt. No matter how your day has gone, you can always snuggle under a quilt and know that you are being surrounded by the love. Whenever someone makes a quilt, a little bit of love is always put into every stitch.
My Mothers Quilts by Ramona Richards is a book of short devotionals that have been inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts.
Each devotional begins with scripture quote. The author has chosen to use different translations for these quotes. I like this change from the norm, it gives me the opportunity to explore other translations other than the NIV that Im accustomed to. She uses quotes from the New American Standard Bible, The Message, English Standard Version, King James Version and others.
The devotionals also include the name and a full colour image of the quilt. The author shares beautiful stories from her familys history . Each story is told from the heart with no pomp and circumstance. None of the stories are spectacular in their own right, but the authors shows us how God has shown his love for us in simple everyday acts.
Each devotional ends with a Prayer Starter. Sometimes we get stuck in our prayer lives, these starters help focus the direction of your prayers.
This devotional has changed how I look at quilts (and other hand-crafts). As the pieces of these quilts are different, I can see that God has made each one of us unique too. Even though the patterns may be the same, each one still has its own story to tell. Our mothers grandmothers stitched each quilt with much love and faith that reminds me of the love and concern that God has for us.
The quilts in this book take me back the days when my mother and grandmother stitched these patterns. Three of the patterns have special meaning to me The Rosette, Dutch Doll and the Log Cabin. As I was reading each devotional I was transported back in time through my own memories of these quilts. Just like Ms Richards family, my own mother and grandmother carefully chose each patterns and stitched each quilt with love. Each quilt portrayed something important that they wanted to pass on to future generations the love that God has for each one of us.

TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Life lessons from quilts & family...June 20, 2016TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I'm not overly into devotionals, despite learning how to read with a kids one and a Bible, but as soon as I heard about My Mother's Quilts I knew I had to read it. I was immediately attracted to this book by the simple word 'quilts'. I'm no good myself but I have quilting in my blood, both my grandma and great grandma have made many a quilt for various family members.
One thing I would like to say is just how beautiful this book really is. When I first opened the package with my copy I was totally impressed with the lovely cover/dustjacket, the quality of the hardcover binding, the glossy pages tinted to match the quilt in each little chapter, the gorgeous photos, and the easy to read text. This is a book that you'll want to leave out to reread and not just set aside like you would an average devotional once you are done with it.
On top of that Ramona Richards has put together an easy to read and interesting book tying in a Scripture verse, life lessons she has learned from the quilts and people in her life, a little prayer starter, and of course lovely photos of the quilts mentioned. I also loved how she would list the quilt pattern featured in each 'chapter'.
I actually read My Mother's Quilts straight through, going through two or three quilts in each sitting. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, Ramona Richards shares her heart and heritage in this lovely little book that any quilter or quilt lover will be sure to appreciate.

Mark4 Stars Out Of 5cool book for quiltersJune 20, 2016MarkQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I am not a mother or a quilter, and this book is definitely a woman's devotional; but I do occasionally review books that don't pertain to me.
This is a very attractive book that would make a great gift for quilt lovers. There is a total of 60 devotionals in the book. Each one starts out telling about the quilt mentioned, along with a photo of it and a spiritual application. The devotional ends with a prayer starter, a short prayer. Every devotional has a color picture of the quilt being discussed, and 30 of those devotionals have a full page photo of the quilt. Although most of the focus is on the quilt and the spiritual application is usually short and no deep theological discourse, they are interesting and helpful.
The book is hardcover with a dust jacket. It is available from Worthy Publishing.
I was given a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Thanks to FlyBy Promotions for the review copy.
Chas Ray5 Stars Out Of 5BeautifulJune 20, 2016Chas RayQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My Mother's Quilts is a beautiful devotion written by Ramona Richards. It is filled with over fifty devotions that are fully illustrated. In each devotion Ramona shares a story that ties into the quilt. Each story usually involves her mother in some way. Of course, not all of them do. At the end of each devotional is a prayer starter. I really liked that it is a starter and not a fully written out prayer. They are there to help you take something that you learned from the story and turn it into a prayer to God.
The devotions are not too long, it might take up to 10 minutes to finish. The prayer time would be up to you because as I said they are prayer starters and not long drawn out prayers. The only downside that I found is the beautiful pictures make you want to quilt. If you are like me, not gifted in that area, then that can be a downer. On the plus side, you have this awesome devotional packed with beautiful pictures that you can look at anytime you want.
This is truly a beautiful devotional book, one of the most beautiful I've seen.It would make a great addition to someone's life. Who doesn't like to look at beautiful quilts?
