A lot of good novels have been published that have quilting themes and quilters as heroines. From heartwarming family tales to mysteries to historical quilt stories, you'll find a quilters fiction book to enjoy.
On your next retreat, take along a book of quilting fiction for pleasure reading when you're done with sewing for the day. Many of these titles are even available as e-books for a Kindle or as audio books for listening while you quilt.
Another idea is to hold a quilters book club discussion as part of the retreat, choosing a quilters novel for everyone to read in advance. This can be a fun activity during a meal -- and be sure to ask everyone to recommend another great quilting book!
To help you find these books, here is a list of authors and search terms for Amazon.com:
Perhaps the most prolific quilt fiction author is Jennifer Chiaverini, author of the very popular Elm Creek Quilts novels. She has even created a series of Elm Creek Quilt Patterns based on the characters and quilts in the novels.
