Rainy Day in Georgia – Curl up With a Book

I love books so I don’t really need an excuse to curl up with one.  But a rainy day can make a good book even more delicious. Even when I am not reading, I like to have my books all around me. My love of books and a blank wall in the library of my law office inspired Fulton County Attorney Law Library. This quilt is featured in Georgia Quilts – Peicing Together a History.  Each member of my staff gave me the title of a book they would write if they had the time.  These titles are embroidered on the spines of the books. This is a very interesting library!

    Wonderful quilt.


  2. What a fun idea to ask for book titles. Can you list some that people suggested?

      The label on the back of the quilt provides a key to the book titles. Here is the list and the “authors.” India is my daughter. I always let her “cheat” by including a block in all of the office signature quilts.

      Thank you for admiring my quilt. As you might imagine, this quilt was a labor of love.
