I made this Star of Hope quilt block for my Curl Up with a Good Book Quilt. This block represents The Healing Quilt by Lauraine Snelling, which was the January book selection for the Quilters' Book Club. Hope plays a large part in this book, which also deals with friendship, forgiveness, and loss. If you'd like to make this block, here's a free quilt pattern for a 15" block.
In the free, online 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.
If you love to quilt and read, please join us! It's easy to jump in anytime. Check out the Quilters' Book Club Schedule right here.
Plan now to join us in February to read Jennifer Chiaverini's Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker, set in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War years.
