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.

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.

My Thoughts:
One of the things I love maybe more than reading is discovering new authors.  Threads of Change is Jodi's first work of fiction and my first book of hers to read.  The story reads like Wilder's Little House On the Praire.  I immediately connected with Liz and loved her character!  This is Part 1 of Barrows A Quilting Story series.  I can't wait to read the "rest of the story" of Liz her sister and cousins.  Barrows characters are all unique and expertly drawn and well-developed.  They felt like "family" from the first of the story and I was sad to leave them for a time when I finished the book!

Happy Reading,
