I like to read and when I saw My Mother’s Quilts: Devotions of love, Legacy, Family and Faith by Ramona Richards I knew it was a book I wanted to review and learn more about. This book is inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts each devotion 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 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.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing the color photos of the quilts and how each quilt had a story and devotional to go along with it. It is truly inspiring about love and faith.
