Instruction PageBack Cover Information

Quilting is the miracle of giving new life and purpose to fabric scraps. It can rejuvenate your spiritual life, too.

"We affirm that life is here and now in our quilting and ability to enable our journey. It is the vehicle for our continuing movement along our lifetime of efforts. Our quilts allow both the goal and the process in one magnificent creation after another. Our quilting generates the perfect combination of faith with action, hope with realism, and the universal particular, so that we are blissful and grateful in our co-creation experiences." -from the Conclusion

What can you learn about yourself through quilt making? What deeper symbolism can you find in the act of cutting and piecing? How can this simple activity help you make your way down a spiritual path?

Delve into these questions and more in this imaginative book that will become your spiritual friend, your teacher, and your sanctuary. Contemporary quilter Louise Silk takes you through her own quilting journey to discover how the process of making a quilt can be used to explore and strengthen your own spirituality. Each chapter introduces a universal human attribute organized according to the mystical tradition of Kabbalah, relates it to a personal life practice and then applies the attribute and the practice to an original quilt project.

Anyone from the novice to the needlework expert - and from any faith tradition -will be nourished and gratified by the patchwork and applique experiences offered in this creative, engaging book. These ten projects, carefully designed for you, include:

  • One-Patch Utility Quilt
  • Log Cabin Quilt
  • String Pieced Pillows
  • Straight Furrows Baby Blanket
  • Quilting Carry-all Bag
  • Patchwork {prayer Shawl
  • Folk Art Applique Quilt
  • Remembrance Crazy Quilt
  • T-Shirt Quilt
  • Rail Fence Signature Tablecloth
  • Plus dozens of variations....

"[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." -HiIlary Morrow Fletcher, project director of Quilt national

"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
