A Podcast recommendation

Just a quick post today to recommend a new quilting podcast - The Quilt Fiction Podcast by Frances Dowell.

The Friendship Album is a story about 5 woman - Eula, Bess, Florence, Emmeline and Dorothy - who gather together as a group based on their mutual love for quilting.  In each episode, we hear a few more chapters of their story.

Frances is a novelist - and a close friend - and is narrating her novel in this weekly podcast.  She is actually still writing the novel, furiously typing to stay ahead of what she shares with us.  Each episode is about 30 minutes long and something fun to keep you company while you do some hand stitching or prep some fabric.

Frances has authored two other quilt fiction books and I'd recommend both of them.  Margaret Goes Modern is a collection of short stories which I've enjoyed reading several times. 

Birds in the Air is a novel about Emma Byrd and her adventures as a new quilter in Sweet Anne's Gap.  I love each of the characters in the book and look forward to the sequel.

Have a wonderful day! Patty
