Quilting is a fun activity that explores the creative ability of an individual. If you wish to give a personalized gift to a loved one that has a part of you and have carefully sewed together to create something exclusive in the truest sense of the word for that individual, then making a quilt is just the thing for you. It is often said that quilting is both a skill and an art. While selection of patterns, designs, colors and fabrics to put together a piece will test the artist in you, following the multi-step process is a skill, like no other. This book explores the different facets of quilting and throws light on each step you will need to undertake in the process.
We met Sister Ermentrude in "Of Wisdom and Valor: The Art of War. The Path of Peace." (Part II of The Windflower Saga) and learned about her twin brother's death at the hands of pirates. But what forces and circumstances brought their family and the Ansgar family together? What led both Ermen and Ermentrude to follow a path of service? Who were these educators who raised Keridwen and Leofric from childhood with all the love of a mother and father? And where did Ermentrude's path take her in later years? In a heartwarming tale which weaves the early lives of several characters together, including Keridwen's parents Lady Anwen and Duke Bogumil, and introduces new characters who influenced the lives of these twin siblings, we learn more about this woman who was just as comfortable as a provincial governor in southern Kimbria as she was being the teacher in a small, rural school in a remote kingdom far from her homeland.
