|School Girl's Puzzle Quilt Block Pattern|
Do you love to quilt AND love to read? I invite you to join the free, online Quilters' Book Club. Each month, we read a book, discuss it through comments on my blog posts, and then make a quilt block to represent that book.
Our book to read and discuss during May 2014 is THESE IS MY WORDS: THE DIARY OF SARAH AGNES PRINE by Nancy E. Turner. It's historical fiction, but the author based the book on the life of her great-grandmother.
Hopefully, you have had time to complete the book by now. I'd love to hear your thoughts on one or both of the following questions.
Trace Sarah's evolution from a young, unschooled girl with rough, homespun grammar to a polished and literate writer. Where in her diary writings do you begin to notice the change?
Sarah is relentless in her quest to educate herself. Why do you think this is so? How does it change her relationships with her family and friends?
