“The Christmas Quilt began as a book that centered around the making of a quilt, but like most things in our lives it turned in an unexpected direction. I found myself writing a story about faith and God’s grace in our lives. In particular, Annie’s quilt reflects the fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5. As each block of the Christmas Quilt is sewn, Annie and Leah share a story based on love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. It’s a romantic story, set in the heart of the Christmas season and focusing on the gifts that God so freely gives to us.”
