I’m writing this on my tablet as we’re away at the moment, so it’ll be a short post this time.

The book for August is called Birds in the Air  and it is written by Frances O’Roark Dowell

Emma has recently moved with her family to a small community and is trying to find her feet and make some new friends. Having never made a quilt before, she’s lured into the fold by the owner of the local quilt shop. Emma quickly realises that everyone seems to know more or less everything about everyone else.

A lovely, uplifting and inspiring tale is spun with plenty of quilting anecdotes, tips and book recommendations in addition to the main storyline. I believe that both newbie and seasoned quilters will find this an enjoyable read.
