The Quilt with an Amazing Story

Welcome to IQM!

Hi! I’m Joni, the maker, author, speaker, and storyteller of the Immanuel Quilt.

Immanuel means God with us. Do you believe God is with you? Are you able to sense His presence and hear His Voice?

One night, in a dream, God spoke to me. He told me to make a quilt representing Names of Jesus and to begin a traveling ministry. I had doubts, fears, and reservations about accepting the assignment. I have a fear of traveling!

In the dream I was given three details for the design, and after accepting the assignment, God was with me at every step providing detailed instructions for a quilt that would tell His Story.

The Immanuel Quilt proclaims in Name, and Truth, that God is with us; Alive and active, still speaking to ordinary people, doing extraordinary things.

Every Name of Jesus reveals something about the character of God, his character reveals his glory, and his glory reveals his presence with us.
