Read in December, 2009

This is a “beach read,” or in my case, a “hospital read.” It is the first in a series of stories about a group of ladies who quilt together. This one tells about a young woman who learns to quilt from a crabby old lady who has a somewhat mysterious past and is a master quilter. The story is pretty predictable, with not always realistic dialogue and some improbable coincidences in the plot. Interspersed are descriptions of quilts, their history and construction. I’m sure, as a quilter myself, I would probably much prefer the companion book which actually has pictures of the quilts in the books and instructions for their construction. It’s like thinking The Da Vinci Code was an OK book, but really loving the illustrated version which has photos of all the art work and architecture described in the original book.
