FROM MY LIBRARY~I finished this book over the weekend and had to share it with you. I have read all of Jennifer's books and so totally enjoyed it; it reminded me of her early books and the main character was Bonnie, a quilt store owner and part of the Elm Creek Quilters. I loved the setting of this book-Lahaina and I actually wondered if some of the sights were really there. Hubby and I vacation on Kauai but we have spent time on Maui. The rich history of Hawaiian quilts inspired me and helped me appreciate them more.
A side not is that on Friday when I spent the day with the Master Quilter, she had just finished a Hawaiian quilt and I felt that I knew a bit more on the background when I looked at it. For those of you who are familiar with Jennifer's books, I would highly recommend this one. I can't wait until she comes out with a new book.
It's windy here today so I think I'll be inside again in front of my machine; I'm hoping to get the top pieced by Sunday so I can put everything away before our family arrives, but also that I have something new to show them.
Have a warm and wonderful day. Noreen
