Each Friday, I'm posting a block of my Curl Up with a Good Book Quilt, which I'm making as part of the online Quilters' Book Club. This Lover's Knot quilt block represents the book The Lover's Knot by Clare O'Donohue, which we read and discussed in June 2013.
In the Quilters' Book Club, we read and discuss a quilt novel each month and then make a quilt block to represent each book. I have long admired red and white quilts so decided to keep it simple and go with just two fabrics, Kona Snow and Kona Rich Red, for my blocks. I found the pattern online at Quilters Cache here. I also found it in BlockBase, the CD-Rom version of Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. In BlockBase, it's called Love Knot, and the source is The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America by Carrie Hall and Rose G. Kretsinger, 1935.
In October, we're reading and discussing State Fair: a Benni Harper Mystery by Earlene Fowler. Grab this book from your local library or bookstore and join the free, online Quilters' Book Club for our monthly book discussion and sew-along.
