DIVThere are more than 20 million quilters in the United States, and 78 percent of dedicated quilters read for pleasure. To reach this vast group, we've expanded our line of quilting books by bringing back qA Patchwork of Pieces, previously published in 1993. qLove of Quilts features twenty-eight entertaining short stories about quilts and quilters collected from the pages of classic magazines such as qGodey's Lady's Book, Harper's Bazaar, and qGood Housekeeping, introducing readers to the captivating worlds of quilters in other times and places.
