Quilters flip through books and magazines and sort through scraps of fabric when planning a new quilt. But when God created you, he took more time and care than even the most careful quilter. Through inspiring stories based on 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:

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.


"You don't have to be a quilter to appreciate Mary Tatem's Quilt of Joy. The metaphor of the Master Pattern and the insights and detail of familiar quilting patterns invite all who love to create beautiful things into this devotional. Take a stitch toward sewing joy into your life every day by reading one of Mary's treasured insights. You'll be pleased you did!"--Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author, A Mending at the Edge

"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
