The last instalment of the series and one that includes murder, mystery and the most wonderful fabrics.
One thing the author has done with this novels, is describe the quilts brilliantly. The colours, the condition, the poverty and the history behind each one give these books a feeling of the love that goes into making each quilt, and the necessities that brought them into being.
Of course the drama, along with murder come hand in hand with all the books. But I really want the reader to know about the quilts. The characters. The friendships. the dogs and cats and most of all the love, that each story brings. Quilts are made of patchworks of fabric and the ties that bind each one are usually ones of family.
Carol Dean Jones has brought all these things together and each book, with their own elements of life, bring the ups and downs that we would usually encounter... along with the added thrill of a mystery.
I have loved this series, I will definitely miss each of the ladies, Charles and Barney. Each book has a quilt to make along with instructions included, and I think any sewist can achieve. Quilts like life are not perfect, but they are personal and relevant to the maker of the quilt and the person who is gifted one.
