Like the colorful and intricate patterns stitched into an heirloom quilt, Jane Part's American Quilt novels weave together history, romance, and adventure. Now all three bestselling tales come together for the first time in this keepsake edition. Beginning with headstrong Johanna Shelby in the small town of Hillsboro, North Carolina, Designs of the Heart follows three generations of remarkable women in an extraordinary American family. Through the heartbreak of the Civil War, across the country in a wagon train to California, to the wild beauty of Hawaii in the late nineteenth century, readers will discover unforgettable tales of courage, character, and faith. Plus there is a special bonus at the end of each book in the series: a pattern and simple instructions so readers can create beautiful heirloom quilts of their own in three traditional patterns.
