Bring balance to your life in the marriage of beauty and function! From selecting fabrics to threading the needle to piecing together your project, the steps you take to create a beautiful quilt will allow you to calm your mind and bring harmony to your life. Master quilter Sandra Detrixhe shares what she's learned through years of creating art out of scraps of cloth: Quilting is a type of meditation. It's both absorbing and mind-freeing. Sandra and several of her colleagues relate stories about the quiet, mindful experience of quilting--choosing fabrics with a purpose in mind, adding pieces with special meaning, and finding a community of quilters. Each chapter includes a suggested activity that will show you how to find peace in the process. You'll soon be able to turn every minute you spend patterning, basting, and binding into enjoyable, mindful moments. With Zen and the Art of Quilting, you'll learn your wonderful, handmade quilt isn't the craft's only reward. The meditative practice of making your lovely new piece is something to be treasured as well.

After Years of Hardship, Jenny’s Life Appears Perfect. So Why Does Something Seem to Be Missing? Jenny Bontrager is finally at a place of love and belonging with her husband, Matthew, and his children. Life seems golden with both her family and career as a writer. But everything Jenny now believes in is thrown into question with the discovery of a long-lost letter from her father. Her sense of peace and contentment destroyed by betrayal, Jenny struggles with her renewed faith--and the love of everyone around her. “Barbara Cameron has written another wonderful, sweet story that tugs at the emotions. Amish fiction fans will definitely want to add A Time for Peace to their library.” --Kathleen Fuller, best-selling author of A Summer Secret, A Hand to Hold, and The Secrets Beneath "A Time for Peace, Barbara Cameron's newest heartwarming story in the Quilts of Lancaster County series, invites readers to come on in, sit down around the table for a cup of tea while getting to know this Amish family where love is happening.

Gabhart, author of The Outsider, Summer of Joy, and Angel Sister "A Time for Peace is an inspirational story of working through some of the tough questions and situations life throws at us.

A quilt is a text. It speaks its maker's desires and beliefs, hopes and fears, sometimes in a language any reader can understand, but often in an obscure language available only to the initiated. The central idea of this book is that quilts and texts are inseparable. The author explores the concept of quilt-as-text through a series of paired chapters. The first chapter in each pairing examines quilting in a particular piece of American literature, reading the significance of textile in text. Contemporary quilt groups are the subject of the other chapter in the pair, exploring the textuality of textile.

A dream that became a reality, and a hope to inspire many on earth. A new beginning. An ordinary human being, a shy and yet caring character. A thoughtful person, someone who rotated her life and transformed it into a peaceful and adventurous one. Trish was just like everyone else; she worked and was a housewife. Trish now has a totally different perspective on life as a whole. She takes on challenges and inspires others along the way. She looks at life with the desire to fulfill and enjoy it; she knows that there is more to life, more that can be achieved. Trish now participates in various voluntary activities, as well as public speaking, as she shares her story and talks about the Schools' International Peace Quilt. Trish wanted to unite schools from every country in the world as a celebration of London 2012, as a way to increase awareness of the Olympic Truce. Was it possible? This book brings to life one of Trish's very popular and thought-provoking talks about her thrilling journey, making it accessible all over the world. In this sixty-minute talk, Trish reveals how this remarkable adventure came about and how her extraordinary dream came true. She carries you forward so that you want to find out the next twist and turn in what happened. "Trish can inspire you to live your dream." -William Booth, age fifteen
