The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club

The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club by Wanda E. Brunstetter is what my book club read for the month of June.   Amish widow Emma Yoder decides to start teaching quilting classes to supplement her income.  Her first students are an eclectic group of people, three men and three women at various stages of their life. This book is being performed as a play late this summer and fall in Shipshewana, Indiana.  You can find more about it at the book's website here.  The story should make a decent play.  Included in the book are directions for a wall hanging and a recipe for Angel Cream Pie.  I made the custard pie for our book club and they all ate their piece.  Another woman in our group made the top part of the quilt from the directions and it turned out great.

Sounds sort of silly. I like the way your club puts those directions to use. How did you like the pie? Was it a recipe worth sharing?

It wasn't a silly book. The pie was alright, though I prefer pumpkin or rhubarb.
