A Wonderful Visual History

As well as great written history of liturgical art. I bought this for a friend, and instead kept it and ordered another one to be sent. As a liturgist and director of music, this is a MUST to have in your library. Anyone inerested in the art of the Church would benefit from this book. The pictures are wonderfully clear, well detailed and a treasure of ideas and inspiration.

Gret Book

Good for churches ecspecially for catholic

Very inspirational and spiritual.

Every time I look at my copy, I find more to give thanks for. Our church has benefitted from the Banners and Quilts we have created, adapted from ideas we found in the book. My dream is to find it reprinted and get it for some friends. I have been fortunate enough to see the cover quilts at an Ecclesiastical exhibit and they are even more beautiful in person. This is a book that should be in everyone's library.

A compendium of Christian liturgical soft art.

The Patchwork Pilgrimage) by Jill Liddell is a compendium of Christian liturgical art, especially quilted banners, altar cloths, and vestments. Nearly every page has at least one color plate depicting a church decoration found in Scandinavia, England, France, the U.S., Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. Though most are contemporary (1980's and 90's), examples from as far back as the Middle Ages are also included. Jill Liddell's descriptions of the individual pieces are supplemented by Andrew Liddell's historical overview of church art. The sections entitled "Ways and Means" and "Christian Signs and Symbols" offer suggestions for quilters who might like to try their hands at liturgical art. Christian quilters will benefit from having this inspiring book in their collections. reviewed by Andrea R. Huelsenbeck

stunning pictures,great book, I've given several copies away

Inspirational book, stunning pictures, I've given several copies away to lady priest friends and now I wish I'd saved a copy. It show a way to combine your love of God and love of fabric/quilting/needlework. Some of us shouldn't sing in public, other for one reason or other don't want to or can't participate in front of the congregation, this is a way to do something to show you care
