Sam | 3 comments I am trying to track down a book I read about 10 years ago. in it, the main character began having dreams about, or becoming possessed by, an antique quilt. I think I recall the quilt was made by a slave woman in the pre civil war south, and she was pretty angry...
any ideas?

Danielle (ielfling) | 14 comments How about Stitches in Time by Barbara Michaels? Here's a synopsis:
'When an antique bridal quilt appears under mysterious circumstances at the vintage clothing shop where Rachel Grant works, she is fascinated. She has never been able to resist handmade textiles from the past, for she believes that through the ages, women wove protective magic into their fabrics in order to mark the important events of their lives: birth, marriage, and death.

But there is more than good in the quilt's magic power. Day by day Rachel sees and feels the power growing, as she senses the quilt influencing her thoughts and actions. Much as Rachel's logical mind longs to deny the supernatural, the aura of evil coming from the quilt is terrifyingly real, and it seems to carry a sinister legacy into the lives of the people Rachel loves.'
