A grandmother, daughter-in-law and 2 grandaughters share monthly visits. Grama has made many quilts and given most of them away. The grandaughters ask her to teach them to make a quilt, which she is happy to do. 12 lessons are woven into the making of the quilt which are lessons of life. Interesting story, but a little too preachy.

I just finished reading this book! It's fantastic! It's the kind of down to earth wisdom that many women are looking for these days woven throughout a story of love and compassion between three generations of women in a family.

I found this to be an interesting and enlightening book. It is one I would recommend particularly to younger women but anyone can benefit from its lessons.

A mother and her two different in personality daughters visit their grandmother often. On one of the visits, they notice Grandma making a new quilt. Both girls decide to make their own quilt and with their mother's and grandmother's help, they set a time for the quilt to be done. Grandma is there for support and help and they must bring their quilts when they visit to see how they progress.

Along the way, their Grandmother teaches these young ladies about life using her Twelve Golden Threads teachings. Each lesson tries to instill and invoke certain characteristics, thoughts and qualities. The threads are ways of examining any project or even how you live your life. The lessons are wonderful and heartfelt. I would highly recommend this to any young lady just starting out in life. Heck, I even learned something myself and I am no spring chicken. I only wished I had learned them earlier!

I believe this would be a wonderful gift for any young Christian woman to receive perhaps when they are 16 or so.

I read reviews for this book that raved about it. I enjoyed it, but not as much as i expected to. To be honest, the last chapter was my favorite, not because it was the end, but I liked the sentiment in that chapter much more than the rather preachy lessons in the previous chapters. Quick read.

This book is good that it gives positive female images of all ages of women from 20 somethings to the aged. In this story all women are shown in equality and gives good examples of mentorship.

The story itself is interesting, but kind of preachy as well. Definitely was not what I expected, but okay.
