My grandmother who was very ill when I was about a year old, she told everyone she will not be called home, till she finishes the quilt for her granddaughter and she did just that. I still have that quilt and every time I see it I am reminded of the story of my grandmother I never new.

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.
