Reviews - What do customers think about Beautiful Threads: Pieces of Encouragement for Quilters?
Read or use for a devotional! May 1, 2005
Beautiful Threads: Pieces of Encouragement for Quilters is 49 heartwarming stories filled with historical facts, spiritual insights and a passion for fabric and the end result; quilts. You don't have to be a quilter or even know one to enjoy this book and the message Tatem delivers. But if you happen to be a quilter, it will delight you.
Tatum starts each section of the book with a description of a quilt pattern, continues with the quilt stories and ends with a Bible verse and a small devotion-like paragraph.
It was a cold spring day when I began reading this book. I wrapped myself in the lovely quilt made for me by my mother-in-law, fixed some tea and lost myself in the stories of hope, faith and love. There is, I learned a similarity between quilting and mixing and matching the pieces, threads and fabrics of our lives.
This is a wonderful book to keep by your bed (to be read or used as a devotional) or to give as a gift to a special person in your life.
