The Cobbled Court Novels by Marie Bostwick are a wonderful blessing!!

I just finished ready the 4 books in Marie Bostwick's quilting series, they were a wonderful blessing.  It's great to read books about women in their 40's and 50's that have real problems and the quilting sister's that support them.  When I'm not quilting I enjoy reading about quilting and how it can make a difference in people's lives.  I have added a few books to my Quilting Novels list on the right hand side of my blog.  If you can find the time this summer pickup a book from on of these talented authors.  I think you will really enjoy yourself.

My quilt is inspired by a quilt called Stars Galore by Sally Murray which is published in the Quilts on American Barns book by Eleanor Burns. It is a 4 x 4 quilt and has 2 different blocks. It also has a ribbon border. This was the first quilt I designed using EQ7.
