Publishers Description Quilting hobbyist Lucinda Secrest McDowell sees each moment as a piece of quilt that God weaves together to make a glorious lifelong work of art. In Quilts from Heaven, she thoughtfully recognizes the "threads of faithfulness, stitches filled with love, and the all-important lining of His grace" while assembling her own patchwork of Scripture, testimony, and heartwarming stories. Most uniquely, the author compares the designs from many traditional quilting patterns to God's intricate work in every person's life.

Rich symbols, rich book Mar 23, 2007
Cindy could not have picked a richer symbol than quilts for her book about the joys and angst of everyday life. Pieced together with love and wisdom, each chapter (based on a quilt pattern) is a reminder of God's extraordinary comfort and help in time of need. Cindy deftly weaves in the historical background of quilt patterns as she binds up encouraging stories of the life of faith. Wisdom, compassion, and even a smile are all there. If you're looking for a gift for a friend, give this. Something in it will touch her heart--and maybe a lot of "somethings."
