Warning to quilters: do not buy this book thinking it's about quilts. The author didn't bother to learn a thing about her purported subject. I flinched when she said "a simple pieced pattern called Grandmother's Fan." There is nothing simple about Grandmother's Fan, especially if you were to try to piece the curves. And this was supposed to be the first quilt made by a woman with no skills, no guild or even teacher to help her. But into the frame it goes, no uneven edges, no bulges, no problem. In your dreams.
As to the "community," we are assured that there is one, but we don't get to experience it. Cardboard characters, emotions told about rather than felt, very silly plot, and one of those endings that is only supposed to lead you into a sequel. It's hard for me to understand how a book this lame got published.
Ms. Hazelwood has done a terrific job creating a small town everyone would want to visit, the characters come to life and we come to quickly care about their concerns and small town happenings. I would encourage buying this book and setting it aside for a rainy weekend so you can read it without putting it down. Is there a sequel coming?
I did care and enjoy the characters, but Ann Hazelwood took a promising plot and turned it into compost. Much I will blame on the editor for not catching some extremely redundant phrases. Hazelwood used "Kodak moment" four times within 115 pages and two of those were within four pages of each other. There were several typos and one word that ran the width of the page--no breaks between words. Hazelwood's use of the "hmmm" was ridiculous. Her writing style got in the way of the story. She makes jumps--a group of women with no experience hand quilting a quilt, doing needle-turn applique without lessons or a book--or she beats the reader on the head with the main character's musings--hmmmmm.

If you want quilt related stories, read the Benny Harper series by Earlene Fowler or the Elm Creek series by Jennifer Chiaverini. Both are well written and most entertaining. The Colebridge Community books can't even qualify as "mind candy".
