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.
To join, become a follower of my blog so you won't miss any blog post. 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 September is The Goodbye Quilt by Susan Wiggs. In the book, mother Linda creates a memory quilt for her daughter Molly to take to college. The quilt is made of material from Molly's former clothes. My mother made a similar quilt for each of her three daughters. Mine is shown above.
