1,100 free copies of Tie Died: A Quilting Cozy were downloaded this weekend during Amazon’s two-day special! How exciting! Lots of new readers are getting to know Sarah and her cohorts in the retirement community while following their many escapades as they solve mysteries and quilt together.
Each book explores another aspect of quilting through the eyes of Sarah and her friends. In the first book, Tie Died, Sarah (hoping to preserve her husband’s ties) learns to quilt at the local fabric shop. In later books, she explores the historical aspect of quilts during the civil war, particularly those quilts designed to identify safe houses along the underground trail. At a quilt show, she learns how batiks are made, and on a quilting cruise, she explores paper piecing. Her fun-loving, boisterous friend Sophie resists quilting until she stumbles upon the art of piecing hexagons and then she’s hooked!
Those of you who are new to the series, welcome. I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. And to my loyal readers, thank you for spending time in Cunningham Village following the antics of this group of endearing friends.
