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 go with the book. I find the patterns free on the internet, making it easy for everyone to access. Each member can choose the block or blocks they'd like to make.
To join, become a follower of my blog so you won't miss any blog post. To make it super convenient, you can also sign up for my posts to be delivered right to you via email. It is never too late to join and begin reading and sewing along with us.
Our book to read and discuss during December 2013 is The Christmas Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini. It's a quick, fun read. Get the book from your local library or bookstore and join us!
In the book, it's a Bergstrom family tradition to make Aunt Gerda's Apple Strudel every Christmas. If you'd like to make a quilt block to represent this tradition, here are some free block patterns:
