Episode 67 – Tracy Chevalier writes quilt stuff! Who knew?

Tracy Chevalier released a new book called The Last Runaway. Have you heard of it?

[note: the above image is an Amazon affiliate link]

According to this review on NPR:

For a novel exploring such explosive themes, The Last Runaway is a quiet, contemplative read, mirroring the demeanor of its Quaker heroine. It might be too quiet for some readers. Much of the narrative is devoted to lengthy descriptions of Honor quilting and performing other homely domestic tasks. These scenes can become rather ponderous.

Woot!  A novel with quilting in it.

I am still wondering how much they are asking for that quilt shop. Wouldn’t it be like an Elm Creek Quilt novel to own your own shop?  Ah.  To have all that fabric and sewing machines whirring and…wake up!

  1. I just saw this book the other day on Becky Moyer’s (My Fabric Obsession blog) GoodReads list. It looks like a good one. I hope my library has it.
    Looking forward to listening to the podcast today.
    Have a great day!

    Hey Kelley, I just went to your pinterest and saw your last name. Is that your maiden or married name? Kôszegi is a Hungarian last name so I’m curious :))) How’s the girl doing with her new sewing machine? Hi to the Husband!

    Your aren’t the only late comer to Downton Abbey. I kept on hearing about the show from other quilting podcasters for the longest time, and then finally last fall I noticed that the program was on PBS. To my luck both season one and two were scheduled to air. I DVRed the shows and so I could watch them. I think I watched season one in the same time frame as you did. Season two I watched a little slower since I didn’t want the program to end. Currently, I look forward to Sunday evenings so I can watch the season three shows. I just simply enjoy the show, it’s just so captivating.

    On your pillow that you are tufting, have you looked for the heavy duty hand needles in the upholstry department of your fabric shops or JoAnn’s? That is where I found long enough needles for a project that I made a while back.
    I like the format that you are doing your shows in.

    My parents raised us on Masterpiece Theatre, so “Downton Abbey” is the latest in a long line of lovely BBC dramas from over the years.

    Sorry to hear about your LQS. Hope things work out.
