Special Episode: An Interview with Quilt Novelist Marie Bostwick!

Welcome to the Quiltfiction blog! If you’re new to our site, be sure to check out the free audio podcast of my novel-in-progress, Friendship Album, 1933. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Marie Bostwick and Deb Tucker!

A few days ago I had the opportunity to talk to Marie about the upcoming Hallmark Hall of Fame movie based on her book, The Second Sister. The movie is called “Christmas Everlasting” and it airs November 24 at 8 p.m. Joining us in our conversation is renowned quilting teacher and tool designer Deb Tucker, who designed a quilt to commemorate the big event. Such fun to talk to these amazing women!

To celebrate the premiere of “Christmas Everlasting,” I’m doing an extra special giveaway. See below for details about how you can win copies of The Second SisterBirds in the Air, and Margaret Goes Modern!

RSVP to Marie’s Watch Party here! You’ll receive some fun recipes and Deb’s quilt pattern when you do.

The party will be held on Marie’s author page on Facebook.

Check out the Hallmark Hall of Fame page for “Christmas Everlasting” here.

Visit Deb Tucker at Studio 180 Design!

Isn’t Deb darling?

      I looked around a bit, but while I see the Hallmark Channel is available in the UK, I didn’t find a viewing schedule. Here in the States you can subscribe to the Hallmark Channel online, and there’s a free-trial period, so maybe they have the same deal where you are. Worth investigating!

  13. I am so excited to see the Hallmark movie and take part in the online Watch party! The interviews were wonderful! Can’t wait to learn more!
