My Mother’s Quilts by Ramona Richards

my-mothers-quilts

I have really enjoyed reading My Mother’s Quilts by Ramona Richards. It’s a book of devotions centered around the author’s mother’s quilts and the stories behind them. Each devotion has a scripture reference, a quilt pattern with a color picture included, and a prayer starter. The stories were rich in history, showcasing colorful patterns of the quilts that had been handmade for centuries by her mother, grandmother, and other family members. Each quilt brought out a lesson based on scripture that would carry her faith forward and honor the memories of her mother and grandmother. She often wove historical references into the devotions, such as including a quilt that had been designed and pieced in the 1840’s using a Carolina Lily as the design. The quilt had been buried during the Civil War to keep it protected from thieves. What had once been bright red and green was now rust and brown. The history had been passed down in her family and finally, the quilt was donated to a museum for safekeeping and to allow the story to continue. The biblical reference was Deuteronomy 4:9, which is a reminder to keep track of our past and repeat the stories often, lest they be forgotten in time. We are to share with our children and our children’s children.

This lesson was brought home by sharing the quilt with the museum so that everyone who visited the museum could hear of its story and preserve it in the hearts of others.

Each devotion is written in such a way. A scripture reference, a devotion tied to a quilt, a picture of the quilt, and a prayer starter to tie it all together. Ms. Richards did a wonderful job with each of her devotions and the book is a pleasure to read from start to finish. It’s a wonderful way to relax and spend time with the Lord.
