“Once I started reading it, I could not put it down.  I wanted to tell you personally how much I have enjoyed reading it--because of the Bible influence in it and because I love to sew.”

--Patty Fish, North Little Rock, Arkansas


“I have been quilting for over 25 years, and have enjoyed this hobby, even before it was so popular!  I have given many, many quilts away to family and friends because it is a tangible expression of love--it's something I can do.  I'm not very good at singing or teaching or talking to a group of people, and I'm not into sports or shopping or a lot of other things--but I DO love to quilt!  I enjoyed reading about all the other quilters who love to create, and many of them give their quilts away.  God CAN and does use even the gift of quilting.  Anyway, thanks for your encouraging book.”

--Jean Carlen, Deer Park, Washington
