The Tattered Quilt
Sequel to The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Class Now Available in Mass Market Edition“I think my students get even more from the class when you help me, Lamar.” Emma Yoder Miller has been teaching several quilting classes alongside her husband Lamar, who has a knack for creating unique quilting patterns. But as signup for this new class is slow and only three people have responded by the class date, they start to think they should take a break. . . . That is until God sends them some last-minute students who are in special need of the friendship and wisdom Emma and Lamar have a way of displaying through their teaching. Will Emma and Lamar learn along with their students that God’s timing is perfect? Selma is a belittling busybody. Terry is a rugged roofer who just wants a casual date with a pretty classmate. Blaine loses a bet and has to join the class, where he soon finds himself in friendly competition with Terry. Anna’s mother signs her up in a desperate attempt to keep Anna from leaving the Amish faith. Carmen holds tightly to bitterness while hiding her secret motives for taking the class. And Cheryl has a broken, mistrusting heart that needs just as much mending as the tattered quilt she brings. Members of this new patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father’s guiding hands—for only He can take what’s ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.
