This project was originally called "Quilt" because we expected it to be a diverse collection of music. With our largest load yet of lady-led songs, Quilt also alludes to Carole King's Tapestry, the longest-charting album by a female artist. In fact, the last song on Quilt is a parody of one that first appeared on Tapestry.

Like tapestries and quilts, this album has a common thread, especially the suite of salvation songs that comprise the second half of the CD. What's more, it's our pop-iest project ever; eight of the songs spoofed herein went to #1, two went to #2, one went to #3, and one went to #4.

Although the music we made didn't turn out to be as diverse as we expected, the music makers did -- five singers, three guitarists, three keyboardists, two bassists, and one drummer -- their hearts knitted together in love (Colossians 2:2) by and for Christ.

You'd have to search through lotsa versions of the Bible to find any references to quilts, but here's one from The Message translation: "Hatred starts fights, but love pulls a quilt over the bickering" (Proverbs 10:12). After all, as you may recall, "love covers over a multitude of sins" (1 Peter 4:8).

And make no mistake -- we all have a multitude of sins, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). That's not just a blanket statement, either. Of course, a checkered past like that could cause you to have a quilty conscience. If so, listen closely to find out all you gotta do.
