Inspiring stories to brighten your day

For hundreds of years, industrious women have been creating objects of beauty and comfort from discarded scraps of fabric. In the same way, God takes the bits and pieces of our disjointed lives and puts them together to form something altogether new and useful. Through heartwarming stories inspired by twelve beloved quilt patterns, Mary Tatem uncovers spiritual insights that offer comfort like a cozy quilt. You'll enjoy stories featuring the following quilt blocks:

Whether you're a quilter or quilt lover, Quilt of Faith will show you how to see God's hand at work in your life.


"The Greek word for comfort is translated as "coming along beside." That's what Mary Tatem has accomplished in Quilt of Faith. Her gentle stories and tender prayers framed by Scripture and lovely illustrations offer the comfort of a quilt as she comes along beside us to bring nurture to our days."--Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author, Aurora: An American Experience in Quilt, Community and Craft

"While quilters will love these two books, so will others who like a devotional based on a story. The stories are based on quilt blocks. Mary has chosen Bible verses to go with her stories, an application and a prayer, always pointing to the grace and comfort of our heavenly Father. Both Quilt of Faith and Quilt of Joy will make marvelous gifts, real keepers to pass on to those you love."--Lauraine Snelling, author, the Red River series, the Daughters of Blessing series, and One Perfect Day
