Threads of Change

It's Friday......another week nearing it's completion.........and a weekend to relax with friends and family......or time to spend doing what you love most.

I always am attracted to Jodi Barrows booth at market.  She is the inventor of the "Square in a Square" quilting technique.  She has a series of pattern books and fabric lines based on this fiction series.  Threads of Change is the first book in the series.  Her quilts are warm and cozy, and have a civil war feel.

This is taken from the back cover of the book....just in case you are interested.  "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." Those who are responsible for settling this great country we live in were amazing people......I find it inspiring to read about them, so I'll see what this story has to offer.

"Live you life on purpose."     Have an especially great week-end.
