I had big big plans for Thursday- quilt plans, lunch with a friend, then my mom ended up in the Emergency Room so I did too.(She is back home now and hopefully will stay there!) I don't have anything to show so I'll share this! (keep scrolling as you have a big opportunity to win a sewing machine!)
Sandra Dallas' latest book, , A Quilt for Christmas, has created a wonderful story about a Civil War-era quilting group, whose members are actually the grandmothers of the Persian Pickle Club ladies. Civil War Era quilting story? Right up my alley! I have to confess I haven't read any Persian Pickle Club books but think I'll enjoy this.
It is 1864, and Eliza Spooner’s husband Will has joined the Kansas volunteers to fight the Confederates, leaving her with their two children and in charge of their home and land. Eliza is confident that Will will return home, and she helps pass the months making a special quilt to keep her husband warm during his winter months in the army. When the unthinkable happens, she takes in a woman and child who have been left alone and made vulnerable by the war, and she finds solace and camaraderie amongst the women of her quilting group. But when she is asked to help hide an escaped slave, she must decide for herself what is right and who she can count on to help her.
You have two ways to win! Leave a comment here and I will send you the book after I've read it, of course, in time for the holidays.
