Welcome!  My name is Alison and I am the maker and designer behind In the Light Quilts. I live in Southwest Missouri with my husband, 4-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. I have always loved making things and I have been interested in quilts/quilting since I was very young, but I finally decided to try making one about 3 years ago.  Once I completed my first quilt, I couldn't stop making them!  I love everything about quilting: the beautiful fabrics, patterns, sewing each piece together, and then having a beautiful yet practical piece of art in the end.  

The name "In the Light" comes from the lyrics in one of my favorite hymns:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in his wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace”

This song reminds me that true joy can always be found in Jesus, no matter what seemingly dark, uncomfortable, unexpected circumstance we may find ourselves in. I am so thankful for the sweet light of Jesus in my life and I pray that my quilts and designs can, in a small way, share the joy of the Lord with others.
