Next up: How to Make an American Quilt on June 13!

We had a great discussion this month (and some tasty cookies and teas) Many thanks to all who came and made it so fun!

June's selection is How to Make an American Quilt by Whitney Otto. There are LOTS of copies, regular & large print, in the library system, so no problems getting one in time! If you have a VCR knocking around, the movie version is also available through the library on VHS.

Interested in a book discussion guide? Here's one from Reader's Circle.

You might enjoy this interview with author Whitney Otto. Find out what inspired her to write this novel and much more!

If the book or movie inspires you, track down Pieces of an American Quilt by Patty McCormick. (There is 1 copy in the library system.) It's the story of the "stunt" quilters who were involved of the making of the film version. It has quilt patterns and much more. Planet Patchwork has a nice review here.

Happy reading until we meet again at 2 pm on Saturday, June 13 for another fun Knit*Lit discussion!
