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 organised 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; Quilting Carry-all Bag; Patchwork Prayer Shawl; Folk Art Applique Quilt; Remembrance Crazy Quilt; T-shirt Quilt; and Plus dozens of variations.
