    I just come across some books written by Marie Bostwick and was wondering if anyone has read them? Some titles I was wondering about are "A Single Thread", "A Thread of Truth", "A Thread so Thin" and her newest "Threading the Needle". Yes she is also a quilter. I just started "A Single Thread" Can't wait to read some more.

    I just downloaded her books to my Kindle Friday. A guild member told me they were very good and she is loaning them to guild members but they read too slow! It would be months before I got my turn. LOL
    You would love Lorraine Snelling Red River series. Very good books with quilting bees and sewing involved.

    I have all four! I read the first 3 and have the other on hold, reading something else. She writes good books, Bostwick that is!

    I also love her books. I've read the first 3 and have just gotten the 4th one. Ready to start reading tomorrow. I feel like I could be in them as they are comfortable and very real. You'll enjoy them.

    If you like novels written by quilters, you should check out the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini. Beautifully written books! :)

    I have read all of the Elm Creek Series and loved them!
    I think that enhanced my love the civil war fabrics and patterns.
    I love those books!

    I have the first 3 of her books; but haven't read them yet. I have my own personal library from being in a bookclub and also buying books at Goodwill.

    Well I have read the first two books and loved then. I just picked up A Thread So Thin yesterday at the library and can't wait to start reading it! The only problem with reading is I don't get any quilting done!!!!!!!!

    The trouble with reading is that I don't get anything done!--except reading and finishing a book. LOL

    I enjoyed every one and am so impatient for the next one to come and who knows how long that could be. I have to remember...patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue...
    Reading about quilting is a good way to get away from the physical part but still keeping in with the emotional part.
    It's all good.

    Yes...they are very good! I have not read the newest, yet, though. I am trying not to do so much reading till after the holidays. This time of year is very hectic for me.

    I actually got to meet her at a local quilt show last month - I purchased 2 of her books and got them autographed! Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to start reading them yet, but when I was waiting for her to sign my books, there were several other women in line who were RAVING about how great the books are! I'm looking forward to reading them!

    i picked up the fourth book in the series from the new shelf at the library. I enjoyed it. Reminded me of the Elm Creek series. So many simularities.

    I have book one waiting for me and will now read in order.

    Another author that I like, that always mentions quilting, is Sandra Dallas.

    But do NOT start with Buster Midnights Cafe. I am afraid if you read that you will not like her. It is ok to read it after you learn to love her books.

    Persian Pickle Club (they called Paisley pattern that in the 30's), Alices tulips, Diary of Maddie Spenser, and New Mercies are all great.

    Her books are all stand alone, no reading in order necessary.

    I just put in a request with my library system for the audiobook (on CD)
    sadly though not all of her books are available on cd (will have to set up ILL).

    Looking forward to getting them and listening to something other than
    my typical murder/mystery/thriller types LOL.

    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.
