Idle hands make no progress, but the fingers of a quilter stitch portraits of love with every pull of the thread. From the lines of the pattern to the clip of the final string, a quilter stitches moments in time.
Woven through the intricate quilt blocks, stories of family, history, and hope for the future turn scraps of material into memorable tributes and in those hours of creation the quilter ponders life, legacy, and love. As the quilt folds across the lap of a quilter, reflection, prayer, and quiet moments resonate. A Patchwork of Promises: 30 Devotions for Quilters pieces together, block by block, a Scripture to ponder and a story from which the quilter can learn.
Gayle Ottemiller threads the needle of Christ and pierces the material of your life, allowing you to intertwine a deeper love of God into the quilts you create. Inside each devotion is a prayer or a patterned thought as well as a suggestion to help you make your stitches useful for the Kingdom. A Patchwork of Promises:30 Devotions for Quilters will draw you nearer to God as you quilt and tie the threaded knot tight to the hem of His garment.
