When life starts to shift into uncertainty, loneliness, loss and conflict, what do you do? For Elizabeth Bromont who has recently lost her husband in a mining accident, the only way to go is forward. Though she is scared and faced with seemingly insurmountable grief, Elizabeth realizes that it is time to go west. Before the war can take everything else she holds dear, she has to move forward. Threads of Change is not just another quilting book by an author who thinks quilts are neat. This is a book that is written from someone who truly knows how to quilt and how those special scraps of material can change and mend lives.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Conflict develops in the South,
Four granddaughters travel into uncertainty,
And Grandfather sells their precious home.
In the first book of A Quilting Story series, the four cousins-with social graces, charm, and a love for quilting-will face the anguish of life on the frontier in 1856 with every turn along the wagon trail. Raging storms and adversities hit the small band of travelers. Relieved to finally arrive at the abandoned military post at Fort Worth, Texas, they begin the hard work of establishing a new home. When trials follow them, they must decide to become true warriors of their hearts, minds, and souls or fall to the sufferings of prairie life.
Join the four women on a passage of friendship, love, and self-discovery as lives are mended around the quilting frame.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Over the past twenty years, Jodi has remarkably touched thousands of quilters throughout the world with her unique method called Square in a Square®. Her point of view provides the quilter with the freedom to create most any quilt design with speed and accuracy.
Jodi has spoken to quilting audiences throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Italy and S. Africa. She has appeared as a guest on several quilting shows, including TNN’s Aleene’s Creative Living, TNN’s Your Home Studio, Perfecting Patchwork on Family Net TV and a pbs series with Kaye Wood.
Jodi was raised in southwest Kansas, has two grown sons, and is married to Steve, her high school sweetheart.
I love quilts and the stories that are hidden in each pattern and inside each piece of fabric. But quilting is tough. I spent some time over on Jodi’s website called Square in a Square and found that she has created some amazing patterns using just squares. I love the way she describes and shows you how to actually create a memory in a quilt without having to be the most advanced quilter in the world.
