Our book to read and discuss during March 2014 is A Drunkard's Path by Clare O'Donohue. Get the book from your local library or bookstore and join us! It's also available on Kindle right here.
The main character in the book is twenty-six-year-old Nell Fitzgerald. At the beginning of the book, Nell is beginning to take art classes and preparing for her first date with Police Chief Jesse Dewalt. She works part-time at her grandmother's shop, Someday Quilts, and is an amateur sleuth on the side. If you'd like to create a quilt block that represents them, I found some free patterns on the internet:
