The news article which started off the Book Club; https://ukqu.co.uk/quilting-fiction-books-ukqu-book-club/
‘To Scotland with Love’.
That’s the book for September. It;s the first book written by Patience Griffin, in the ‘Kilts and Quilts’ series.
Now, I do have to confess that I had never heard of this series until I met Susan Briscoe, of whom some of may have heard – and she was very enthusiastic about it.
The plot is pretty straightforward -…[Read more]
Hi all just joined the group now there a book for Setember please
Hi Eileen. I saw a post that said it was ‘to Scotland with love’ by patience Griffin. I could be wrong because I can’t find anything on here about it. It’s supposed to be a bit racer in parts so beware!
Thanks Barbara. Just wondering if this group is still active. Doesn’t seem to be anyone else on here
I’m finding this book a little slower than the earlier ones, but it’s getting better.
They have an article on ‘the quilts of Alias Grace’ which is interesting.
Just finished and loved it, yes the ending was predictable but I still enjoyed it. I don’t like ambiguity, I need to know so it was good for me.
Not my usual type of book so thanks for the recommendation x
I read this a while back and almost gave up as I found it very hard going at first, but I persevered and then enjoyed it. If I recall correctly I wasn’t too happy with the ending but I now can’t remember why.
I haven’t read any more in the series yet. I have read a few books by a different author in the order they were released (very different genre) and found I didn’t enjoy them as they were very similar in style to each other. I might leave it a while then dip into a later book (if they don’t have to be read in a certain order).
I’ve just finished The Quilter’s Apprentice. I really enjoyed it and would love to be part of a quilting group like The Tangled Web Quilters. My mum started quilting by going to an evening group at different ladies homes. I also want to start up a business like Elm Creek Quilts!
… ‘Alias Grace’, by Margaret Atwood.
This is a big contrast to ‘The Quilter’s Apprentice’, and is quite a weighty read. It’s widely available, and if you just cannot face reading it in this unending heat, there’s also a TV version on Netflix.
Be warned that it does have some quite grim scenes in it though.
I look forward to seeing what you…[Read more]
I found it quite a gentle book to just sit in the sun and read over the weekend. I might read another one but agree i might not enjoy them if i read them all in one go, every now and then would be nice.
