My Mother's Quilts by Ramona Richards and a Giveaway!

#MyMothersQuilts and #FlyBy

Have you ever looked closely at a homemade quilt? Really looked at it? How even the stitches are? How the stitches hold each  of the pieces together. Tying them together, bonding them. A quilt can look so incredibly delicate and yet be so strong. Much like family and friendship. Quilting is truly an art that is practiced with passion and given in love. Quilting is something I wished I had asked my husband's Grandmother to teach me. 

In the new book, My Mother's Quilts - Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family  and Faith by Ramona Richards, you'll find an amazing collection photos of the quilts he mother had. Some of them were made by her mother's own hands, others were passed down from family and friends. All are stunning. Among the wonderful stories and memories of her mother and each of the quilts, Ramona shares wonderful devotions for everyday living. I received this book to review and I am immensley enjoying every page. The memories are so personal and touching, the photos are gorgeous as are the quilts and the devotions are the kinds of reminders and lessons we can all use to help make the world around us a little kinder, a little gentler. Even if you don't quilt, you'll enjoy reading Ramona's memories of these quilts and be touched by the devotions that accompany them.
