Back Cover Information

When a young girl discovers a stack of applied quilt blocks from the past, a thread to another time and place opens up for her to explore. Her desire to piece together the blocks she finds leads her on a journey full of lessons about life, love and even death - and how a love for quilting can bind generations.

As an added bonus, instructions are included to re-create Alice's quilt for your very own.

About the Author

Jennifer Blomgren was born and raised in Forks, Washington. The youngest of three daughters, she spent many of her happiest childhood hours visiting and learning needlework skills from the older ladies of the neighborhood. Her mother taught her to sew, her grandmother taught her to quilt, her father taught her the value of history through books and his own masterful storytelling; and all these gifts have greatly enriched her life.

She works as a registered nurse and in her practice, mostly with the elderly, she finds that the subject of needlework brings her and her patients onto common and familiar ground.

Jennifer's great-aunts in Lynden, Washington, made beautiful quilts using wool from their own sheep, and her step-great-grandmother was a locally famous quilter in the beautiful Blue Mountain foothills of eastern Oregon. The natural beauty of these strikingly contrasting areas, the artistry of handmade quilts and stories of the lives and times of her relatives has influenced her greatly.

Jennifer has lived almost all her life in the Pacific Northwest, nursing, singing, writing, painting, knitting and sewing, gardening and appreciating the beauty of the natural world and the love and loyalty of her family and her three beloved dogs. She feels that our modern world in its rush too often leaves behind the things that matter the most: love, connection, patience, quiet, careful attention and beauty, all of which are exemplified by quilts.
