Not too long ago one of my readers contacted me asking if I might be interested in making a trade. I think bartering is a great deal of fun so I was game. I had something she was interested in. A vintage embroidery pattern that I had acquired on eBay. She offered up this book!
When I got the book I was super excited to dig into it. What I love, that she has done here, is given some great history about the people that headed west during the gold rush, but also about the quilts they made.
Cindy did such a great job putting this book together and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Now I'm anxious to make a few quilt squares too.
If you love quilting and want to add this unique book to your quilt book collection I think this would be a great one. Cindy also has a book out on crazy quilts and another one for quilting with handkerchiefs.
