Quilters recognize that even bits and scraps can be made into something new and beautiful. In Quilt of Joy, Mary Tatem uses twelve quilt patterns along with spiritual reflections and stories to encourage and inspire you to become the unique person God wants you to be. Paperback.
Quilters understand with every stitch how God can make even scraps wonderfully new and striking with a little time, imagination, and love. In these touching books, Mary Tatem pieces together spiritual insights and stories of quilters into devotionals that feature some of the most beloved and recognizable quilt patterns in America. Readers will discover the historical background of each pattern and be enchanted by the spiritual reflections on joy, faith, creativity, gratitude, patience, hope, and more. Encouragement, inspiration, and celebration--as well as some great stories--await readers as they discover that, in God's design, even the smallest scraps or most frayed fragments can be fashioned into something new, complete, comfort-giving, and beautiful.
