Cobblestones Quilt Block and The Setting of A Thread of Truth

Bricks and Cobblestones Quilt Block (just the Cobblestones part)

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.  I research several potential blocks to go with the book's themes, setting, main characters, and events.  And 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.    

Our book to read and discuss during April 2014 is A Thread of Truth by Marie Bostwick.  It's the second book of her Cobbled Court Quilts series.  Get the book from your local library or bookstore and join us!  It's also available on Kindle right here. 

A Thread of Truth takes place in the small New England town of New Bern, Connecticut in contemporary times.  New Bern is a fictional town, though very similar to the rural town in Connecticut where the author actually lives.      

I found the following quilt block patterns free online that go with the setting of Evelyn's quilt shop, Cobbled Court Quilts, and the village of New Bern, Connecticut.
