Minnesota Quilts: Creating Connections with Our Past is a unique treasury of exceptional quilts, fascinating quilters, and their stories from the Minnesota Quilt Project, whose members traveled the state for nearly twenty years, photographing and documenting quilts and interviewing quiltmakers. The result is a collection as varied and expressive as the makers themselves. From early pioneer days to the 1970s, these quilts, showcased in glorious full-color photographs, span a significant era of Minnesota and reflect our distinctive heritage. Whether you’re a quilter or someone who has a love of quilts and their history, this collection of Minnesota’s extraordinary patchworks will help you create connections with your past.

**SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** **RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK** **WATERSTONES SCOTTISH BOOK OF THE MONTH** 'An astonishing feat' Christina Patterson, Sunday Times 'An inspiring and moving sideways look at history' Eithne Farry, Sunday Express An eloquent blend of history and memoir, Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story. From political propaganda in medieval France to secret treason in Tudor England, from the mothers of the desaparecidos in Argentina to First World War soldiers with PTSD, from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland, Threads of Life is a global chronicle of identity, protest, memory and politics. Banner-maker, community textile artist and textile curator Clare Hunter chronicles the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances. 'A beautifully considered book... Clare Hunter has managed to mix the personal with the political with moving results.' TRACY CHEVALIER
