Quilt or Innocence by Elizabeth Craig
I found a new series with quilters and a cozy murder mystery. So new that the second book just came out in February 2013. Set in a small town in the south, Beatrice is the main character - a retired folk art museum curator from Atlanta, GA, she decides to follow her daughter and moves to a small town for some peace and quiet with her corgi after she retires. While the quilting guild is determined to convert Beatrice into a quilter, she is just as determined to solve the death of one of the quilters.
It is a fun quick read filled with a strange mix of quirky people in a not so quiet let alone peaceful town. Such as one elderly driver almost hits Beatrice as she is walking down the street. The elderly woman shakes her fist at her and calls Beatrice a "road hog!". Apparently she is well known for her driving skills and yet, she is still driving. Now that's an endearing quirky town....I won't even start in on Beatrice's new neighbor!! It is also a very clean read with no swearing or sex. They did do a lot of quilt talking in between solving the murder mystery. This is my kind of book. I can't wait to read Elizabeth's next book.
On The Cutting Board
Before we leave Benson, I plan to give the Park's quilt group three quilts for their children's charity. We will be heading on down the road next Tuesday. I'm already starting some new tops.
Well, actually some of the blocks have been sitting around waiting to be finished. It is time to blow the dust off of them and get them done!
