The quilt that walked to Golden

Sorry I didn't post much but this is a busy time with 3 of my daughters in a show. My eldest is Peter Pan and I had to make a costume for her. I will take a photo as soon as I can. I also had to sew 40 sequins on a ballet dress; it took me all of an evening as I couldn't do knots on the netting.

I wanted to tell you about a book I finished and really loved. It is called "The quilt that walked to Golden" by Sandra Dallas.

All publishing rights will go to the museum of quilts in the town of Golden, USA.

Basically it tells you the story of quilting in the state of Colorado, through the history of America. There are a lot of photos, and I read it as a novel, easy and entertaining. I strongly recommend it.
Don't you wish we could go in that shop and have a peak at all the goods stocked...?

HI Pascale,

What a sweet mother you are! I can't wait to see the costumes you had made for your girls.

I want to let you know that the magazine arrived yesterday - I am thoroughly enjoying it. Thanks so much for sending it to me...

Thanks for recommending the book - I will have to check it out as I love history and quilts. :)

Have a great day!
