Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Shows you how the art of quilting can become a daily ritual of spiritual and psychological renewal, regardless of your faith."
Quilts with Style

“[Shows us how] creativity and the construction process enable a quilt maker to engage in an internal dialogue which can lead to a multitude of intangible personal enrichments and an awareness of the spirituality that is within each of us.”
Hilary Morrow Fletcher, project director of Quilt National

“A deeply reverent and meaningful guide to the higher dimensions of a widely beloved craft and hobby.”
Midwest Book Review

“Meanders along a double lane of creative expression and celebration of life. At each stop, readers learn from the artist's own hard-won life lessons and receive inspiration both practical and sublime.”
Eleanor Levie, author of American Quiltmaking: 1970–2000

“The simple tools of thread and fabric both cover and reveal a soul. Here oneness with the Divine is not a castle in the air, but a tangible and useable thing, a way of uniting heaven and earth. Quilting is a kind of prayer in action. If you read and use this book, you will find that it is your own soul that is revealed.”
Jason Shulman, founder of A Society of Souls and author of The Instruction Manual for Receiving God

“A pleasant surprise.... As personal as it is practical.... Fascinating insights.... Fires up the imagination with excellent diagrams and explanations.... Simply divine.”
Canadian Jewish News

“A compelling invitation to intersect our own spiritual paths with the power of quilting. Deftly shows how we can explore further dimensions of understanding by literally creating whole cloth from the pieces of our stories. Access to unique and meaningful possibilities opened up as I read.”
Linda Skolnik, coauthor of The Knitting Way: A Guide to Spiritual Self-Discovery

“Impressive.”
Reporter (Binghamton, NY)
