Congratulations to Anne Maundrell for winning last week’s Sunrise/Sunset quilt contest with her gorgeous Cat at Sunset tribute quilt to her kitty Aicha. She wins a pack of Fig Tree Quilts patterns donated by Jojo’s Quilt Shoppe.
This week’s theme is Story Quilts and is sponsored by Revell Books and Mary Tatem. Two lucky winners will each win one of Mary’s new books. I’m looking forward to reading about and seeing all your beautiful quilts that tell a story.
Quilt of Joy by Mary Tatem
We were first introduced to Mary Tatem a couple of weeks ago. Mary has written two new books: Quilt of Joy – Stories of Hope from the Patchwork Life, and Quilt of Faith – Stories of Comfort from the Patchwork Life. You’ll learn more about Quilt of Faith in a couple of weeks.
Stories of Hope from the Patchwork Life
by Mary Tatem
Draw these stories around yourself like a well-loved quilt.
Quilters flip through books and magazines and sort through scraps of fabric when planning a new quilt. But when God created you, he took even more time and care than even the most careful quilter. Through inspiring stories based around twelve beloved quilt patterns, Mary Tatem uncovers the joy we have in God and the hope of beautiful things yet to come.
You’ll enjoy stories featuring the following quilt blocks:
- Pickle Dish
- Pine Tree
- Bear Claw
- Crazy Quilt
- School House
- Drunkard’s Path
- Tumbling Blocks
- Le Moyne Star
- Love Apple
- Mariner’s Compass
- Rose of Sharon
- Wandering Foot
Whether you’re a quilter or quilt lover, Quilt of Joy will reassure you of God’s faithfulness and his desire to bring blessing to your life.
