  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 8/26/2011

    " I am enjoying Chiaverini's entire series of quilting/friendship books. I liked this book better than Book 2 because the characters were more fleshed out and the quilt was definitely the background rather than the foreground of the book. Good story - enjoyable. A nice vacation read. "
