“I hate quilting! I hate sewing! I hate anything that has to do with needles and thread!”
Mennonite gal, Nanette Peachey, is a member of the Snyder County Quilting Bee, a group of ladies who sew as a ministry, giving their beautiful hand-made quilts to families with new babies, missionaries, newly-weds, and the needy. But Nanette is a tomboy, who’d rather play softball at church picnics, ride one of her six Tennessee Walking Horses, or just be outside than attend the ladies’ bee every Thursday evening.
With the support of her fiancé, horse breeder Brandon Specht, Nanette resigns from the quilting bee but offers to sew the bindings for all the quilts on her own time. When a gorgeous sateen gold binding that she has finished disappears into thin air, Nanette is baffled and has to start all over, lamenting over the hours of work she has lost.
Nanette receives one of the biggest surprises of her life when her mother and the quilting bee ladies throw a bridal shower for the bride-to-be. The most cherished gift of all is a beautiful tan quilt decorated with an appliqué of a prancing white stallion framed in quilted horseshoes. And what highlights the sewing masterpiece?  The missing gold border that had found its way to Nanette’s mother via Brandon’s scheming behind Nanette’s back.
“I can’t thank you enough for making this quilt and for making today a very special day,” Nanette says to her mother and everyone at the shower. “This quilt is a treasure … and so are all of you.”
