Quilting and Faith

Since I've begun my journey as a novice quilter, I'm seeing everything through the lens of quilting.  So as I sit and ponder, quilting has started to take on more meaning to me than just a fun hobby or something to create and make memories.  Quilting has become a metaphor of sorts for my life.  Learning to piece together different fabric patterns, colors, and shapes has enlarged my scoop of vision of how so many different things can work together.  Just as there are three vital parts that make up a quilt, the top, batting, and backing.

My life exist because of three very vital Persons, God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.

As I live a life of faith in Christ, I'm learning how all the different things that this life throws at me all work together for my good. Just as the top, batting, and backing are needed to make a quilt complete, so does my life need God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.

I promise not to turn this blog into a forum on all things religious and spiritual. However, as I learn how to create and piece together quilts, its great to be sure of Who has created and pieced me together.


  1. So true - great metaphor :-) and I have an Israel too (he's my oldest)...


  2. don't every apologize for honoring the Lord. he is to be praised at all times. some of us don't mind
