In The Christmas Quilt, by Vannetta Chapman, Annie Yoder is preparing to make a quilt for one of the babies, her brother and his wife are expecting. Unexpectedly the babies are in danger of coming early, so Annie spends time in the hospital with Leah. She hopes to finish the quilt on time, but she may not be able to.
About the Author- Vannetta Chapman currently lives in the Texas hill country. She is the author of five books about the Amish.
My Thoughts- The Christmas Quilt, by Vannetta Chapman, was a heartwarming Amish story. I have always enjoyed reading about the Amish. Chapman’s book was unique, because it included a lot about our own world. Leah needed to be in the hospital to postpone the birth of her babies, so Annie stayed with her.
I thought the best part of the book was the different stories that Leah and Annie told while they worked on a quilt for one of the bopplin (babies). The quilt would have nine Dutch children. God showed nine fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Leah decided that they should tell one story per Dutch child square about a specific fruit of the spirit. She thought that while she was in the hospital she would work on improving herself. That is something I need to do in my daily life, so this was an inspiration to me.
I highly recommend this book!
