A Quilting Cozy Series – Now Available on Kindle Unlimited

The first eleven books of this series are now available on Kindle Unlimited which means if you sign up for Kindle Unlimited on Amazon, you will get the ebooks at no cost beyond the membership fee! This has not yet been extended to the last book in the series (Frayed Edges, A Quilting Cozy, Book 12) but the publisher is working on that.

Also, Amazon is erroneously listing the first eleven books as part of an “11-book series” and this is not correct. There are 12 books in the series and Book #12, Frayed Edges, is on Amazon just not included in the count. I have heard from many readers saying they have just read Book 11 and they hope I’m writing more so I’m hoping to reach those people so they will know there is a Book 12, Frayed Edges.

Okay, with that out of the way – It’s finally springtime at least here in the United States. I’m in West Virginia and the leaves are beginning to come out and my Red Bud is in full bloom. The blossoms took a beating in a surprise snowstorm a couple of days ago. Red Buds are very common in West Virginia and can be seen in the early spring along every winding country road. Story goes that early settlers used the presence of Red Buds as an indication that the area had excellent soil.

And it’s time to begin spring cleanup in the yard and the house. I’m planning to do Spring House Cleaning next week. Yes, I know that’s out of date, but I’m in my 80s and we older (and more traditional) folks still do things like that. I believe, at least in my family, it was necessary during the thirties and forties because of the coal-burning furnaces. Spring was spent clearing away the soot that had accumulated in hidden corners and particular on the wallpaper (yes, wallpaper! remember, I’m old). My grandmother and I would clean the walls with this rubbery stuff which was like silly putty. I was responsible for the bottom two feet! (I was young then!).

I have been making baby quilts for an outreach program in our county. It’s called YoungLives and is directed toward pregnant teenagers and young mothers. One focus is for trained mentors to encourage and help them stay in school and also to provide training in parenting skills and help these ‘children’ transition into parenthood. So far, I’ve made a couple dozen baby quilts and will include more pictures in my next blog.

I want to welcome all our new followers! Pat Sloan has very kindly shared my books with her followers and I have heard from many of you that they are enjoying the series. Thank you, Pat! And welcome newcomers.

I also want to encourage my new followers (and everyone else) to continue leaving a message under ‘Comments’ below or writing to me at QuiltingCozy@gmail.com. I’d love to see pictures of your quilts or other crafts, or simply hear what you’ve been doing. I hope the addition of my series to Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited makes it possible for more people to read the books.

My very best wishes to everyone,

Carol Dean

  1. Oh my gosh Carol – love those baby quilts. They sure will be a blessing to some moms and babies! As for Spring Cleaning, in my house it was Spring and Fall. Furniture was rearranged (away, or in front of radiators), drapes and curtains were swapped, baseboards and ceiling crown were dusted, and yes, the dreaded wallpaper washing! That’s one thing I adore about you – how well I can relate to you (and your characters). The cleaning is a lot of work, but Oh the joy when it is done.

  2. Hi Carol! How nice that Amazon is offering your books but they need to get it right about the number of books in the series! Your baby quilts look beautiful. I am 100% certain they will feel all the love you’ve stitched into each and every one of them. The Red Bud trees are gorgeous! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Oh thank you so much for adding your series to KU! I love it when new series get added. My mom and I both have KU. She’s 89 and practically devours cozy mysteries but she’s limited to ones that live in Kindle Unlimited, so again, I sure appreciate this new addition!

    • Tari I hope you will give the series a try and your mother also as the characters are in their seventies and eighties and she will be able to relate to them. Start with the first one, Tie Died, because it sets the stage for the rest of the series. I also think there is an advantage to reading them in order because you will then be able to follow the development of their relationships. Let me know how you like them. You can drop me a line at QuiltingCozy@gmail.com. Best wishes to you and mother.

  4. That batch of baby quilts sure turned out fabulous. I love the “vintage” look of that first one in particular. I know these quilts will mean a lot to those who are lucky enough to receive them through the program you’re making them for. As for Spring cleaning – By the time we finish Spring cleaning it will be time to put the Christmas decorations up! See you soon Sister……….I promise.

    Hugs, Pam

    • Well, it took me five days to get back to your comment, but as you read, this was spring house cleaning week and here it is Friday night and I actually finished in the five days. I have a quilt retreat next week so I will take a day off to rest and begin planning what I will work on at the retreat and collecting all my paraphernalia. Little Casey is going to the local kennel. It will be his first time being away from home overnight. (For anyone reading this other than Pam, Casey is my little 10 lb Shih Tzu. I will introduce him in a blog one day.) So Pam, thank you for your comments and I hope to see you soon.
      Hugs, Your big sister
