Another year has come to an end, and what a different year it has been! The UKQU Book Club started back in April 2018 and we have since then more or less every month suggested a quilting related novel or biography to read.

Earlier books in the UKQU Book Club

The books we read during 2018 and 2019 can be found in my round-up post from December 2019 – click here to read it.

Looking at 2021

I have tentatively selected the twelve books for 2021 and hopefully you’ll join me throughout the year.

I’d love if you commented on my book club blogs, ticked the little love heart at the end (recommend) or shared that you’re reading the books (or can’t get hold of them…) in UKQU Social on Facebook (this is a private group, so only members can see your posts and comments). Please note that you must be a member of our main Facebook group UK Quilters United to be accepted in the social group.

Our own books

We have published two books written by and about members of UK Quilters United. They are both for sale on Amazon globally and available for free if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber;

  • UK Quilters United by a common thread, editor Julie Passey – link to Amazon
  • UK Quilters United by a second thread, editor Nina Danielsson – link to Amazon

Happy reading!
