â€œIs it overkill to snuggle up under a quilt and read a book about quilts?â€ the review on the Quilters Newsletter blog asks.
Not when the book is The Travelers: Present in the Past, by Elaine Schmidt. The novel, published by Kansas City Star Quilts, follows the adventures of a modern-day girl who travels back to the late 1890s.
Gigi Khalsa, associate editor at Quilters Newsletter magazine, wrote the review, which bears the headline â€œAll Aboard the Quilt Express!â€ She calls Travelers â€œa fun, light and fast-moving story.â€Â She says the book would make a great gift for that young reader in your life.
She also offers this bit of advice: â€œSo, just once this winter, take that quilt off the wall, off the shelf, out of the hope chest, and let it enfold you and warm you like a big hug across time.â€
