Maybelle In Stitches | A Quilts of Love book.

Maybelle Kazinzki can’t sew. She was after all, the only girl in the seventh grade Home Economics class to sew the zipper in the neck hole of the A-Line dress they were supposed to make. But when she finds an unfinished quilt in the attic of her mother’s house she gets the crazy idea to finish it—somehow, come heck or high water. She thinks it will help fill the lonely nights while her husband, Holden, is serving overseas during World War II.

Her recently departed mother’s quilt is made from scraps of material Maybelle traces back to her mother’s childhood, her grandmother’s childhood and her own childhood. She tries to add one of Holden’s stripes to it but the sewing is not going well and neither is her life. After receiving some harsh news, Maybelle’s faith falters and she puts the quilt away and stops trusting God. But God is faithful- no matter what. And it’ll take a group of neighborhood women armed with quilting needles to help Maybelle believe that.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Another book in the Quilts of Love Series from Abingdon Press, the story of Maybelle in Stitches centers around a special quilt in one of the characters lives. Maybelle finds an old unfinished quilt in the attic and decides to finish it, and during the time she was finishing the quilt found some surprising facts. This historical old quilt has a special meaning and story as Maybelle continues to working on is during a very difficult time in her life. The time she awaits and hopes that her husband is still alive.

I loved heartwarming story, the impact it has on Maybelle’s life was even more heartwarming. As I followed the story, it was like I could feel Maybelle’s feelings right along with her, and I found that very enduring. And I enjoyed getting to know Maybelle and the other characters that brought this story to life between the covers of this book. I highly recommend this book for another wanting a good, clean heartwarming story. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity Group and Abingdon Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed here in this review are mine only.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
