“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 new babies, missionaries, newly-weds, and the needy. But Nanette is a tomboy, who'd rather play softball at church picnics, ride her Tennessee Walking Horse, or just be outside than attend the ladies' bee every Thursday evening. Nanette can't take it anymore and 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. Shortly before her wedding day, 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. What is it that leaves her speechless?
