Path to Cobbled Court by Marie Bostwick

This boldly graphic quilt goes together easily and would be great in many different color schemes. QM Graphic Designer Denise Starck put together a few possibilities.

How about some girl colors?

Or maybe some Jo Morton-type colors?

Or the classic blue and yellow is always good!

Kind of makes your head spin with the possibilities!

  1. I just finished reading ” a single thread ” hated to see it end, was excitment in every page felt like I was right in and part of the story it was that good and I see in the book front you have others about quilting hope to find them with the same peoples. Thank you Marie and a blessing for many more years of wonderful writing PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.

  2. Joanna Vlaming says:

    Saw Marie’s books, Cobbled Court Series, advertised in a quilt magazine, went on holidays to the States — live in Canada–went to bookstores looking for the series, found all of them except the first one “A Single Thread”, came home and ordered from a bookstore , started reading them could not put them down until I was finished the series. I loved the books and I am also a quilter. When reading them, it was like you were part of the Quilting Circle. Looking forward to reading more of her books. Passed them on to my sister and she is enjoying them.

  3. Phyllis Barton says:

    Enjoyed reading “A Single Thread”. Looking forward to reading more and also about the quilt patterns since I teach quilting at the community college.

  4. Cindy Hair says:

    I have read the first three books and own them. I want to get the next ones soon.

  5. Eileen Caspers says:

    I really enjoy Marie’s books.

  6. LouAnne Sassone says:

    I’ve read her first 2 books and am waiting for the library to send me notice that #3 is available for me. I love it when quilt magazines offer different color variations for a pattern. Sometimes a pattern doesn’t click for a quilter until she sees it in “her colors”! I know I’m late for the contest, but I enjoy her books so much, I want to move to New Bern!

  7. Pat says:

    New to her books but have read so many great reviews, will definitely be checking these out! Thanks for the opportunity to enter and I just checked out her webstie. Will be registering shortly.

  8. Jessie Llewellyn says:

    I added Marie’s website to my favorites. I have “Ties That Bind” on my TBR list. I believe I saw info on the book in my Romantic Times mag & thought that it would be a good read.

  9. lizzie says:

    I would love to win Marie’s books. I read the first two and they are wonderful! Keep writing marie!!

  10. KIKI W says:

    Love the website. So glad I found it.

  11. Carolyn Linderman says:

    LOVE Marie’s books!! (I can’t believe that there are quilters who enjoy reading who haven’t read them yet — I try to do my part by spreading the word!) I also enjoy beFRIENDING Marie on Facebook; she often responds to comments left on her page and definitely makes everyone feel like part of her family. If ever I have the opportunity to meet her in person, I’m sure that she will be just as sweet, down-to-earth and genuine. Thanks Marie, and Quiltmaker magazine for including her!

  12. Laura Palmore says:

    Marie’s books touch the heart of all women because her characters in fiction are as diverse as in real life. I truly believe it is because she stays in touch with the real people in her life…her family….her friends..and her fans. I don’t usually buy books because I read too fast and so many but I have everyone of Marie’s!

  13. Jeanne Lex says:

    Talked my lqs, The Quilted Crow, Boxborough, MA, in to carrying Marie’s books. They’re going like hot cakes ! Sold out right away – even my reserved copy !

  14. Mary Ellen Zeitz says:

    I’ve read every one of Marie’s books (and enjoyed them very much). Ties That Bind has been pre-ordered; impatiently awaiting it’s delivery. Hope to catch up with Marie at Quilting by the Yard in Vernon.

  15. Joyce Best says:

    What a great contest. Would love to win the series of novels.

  16. Debby says:

    I have not yet read any of Marie’s books, but you can be sure I will in the near future. I really enjoyed checking out the website. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  17. Gail C-P says:

    I met her at the Vermont Quilt Festival, she was very nice! I love when 2 favorite things blend together….quilting & books!!

  18. Debbie Nicholson says:

    I am so excited that the next book is out tomorrow and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
    I have been on her e-mail list for a couple of years and love to check her blog regularly.
    The folded block she has posted certainly looks like more than just a traditional pieced block.

  19. matkeltri says:

    I went to the website. I’d never seen a folded block before. :) My mom loves quilting and would love these books.

  20. Phyllis S says:

    Can’t wait. Loved the past Cobbled Court books and know the new one is going to be as much of a blessing to me and my friends. Have recommended these good reads to many.

  21. Heather A says:

    Wonderful website. I am in awe of someone with so much talent. Creative people are magic and Ms. Bostwick has a double dose of creativity with her writing and her quilting. What a great prize this would be to win.

  22. Teresa Young says:

    I am new to quilting so I am glad to check out Marie’s website for inspiration – I can’t wait to read the Cloobled Court series.

  23. Marla says:

  30. Kathryn Creekmore says:

    I feel like I have been waiting forever for the next Cobbled Court book. I get so involved I can’t put the book down until I’m almost completely done. I then like to take my time because I know it’s going to be a while before I can get the next installment. I love these characters!

  31. Sharon says:

    I’ve visited Marie’s website. As a crafter myself, I love it. Thanks for the chance to win a great giveaway!

  32. Cheryl Netzke says:

    I am a member of Marie’s website and have read all her books. Can’t wait to get her latest, The Ties That Bind. I know it will be a beautiful read. Marie is an amazing quilter, an inspiration for all, whether through her books, or through her quilting.

  34. Pam Wells says:

    Love the website and the books look interesting!

  35. Paula says:

    I was on Marie’s blog and was intrigued w/the store “Quilting by the Yard”. They are offering 10% of Marie’s book sales at their store to her favorite charity. Since her charity and mine share a common theme (women and domestic violence), I might have to figure out a way to get there and order the book from that store! :)

  36. Debbie Goldshto says:

    Marie’s books are great…..but most of all she is a wonderful, caring person. Thanks to you, Marie!!

  37. Carla H. says:

    If I were granted 3 wishes today, the first one would be a shopping spree to buy the unlimited fabric to make the Pathway to Cobble Court quilt in an array of bright colors, the second one for my schedule to clear so I can sew uninterrupted, and the third for the time to read “Ties That Bind” from cover to cover if I so desire. . . (the unlimited fabric is to make quilts to donate). Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

  38. Marg McCulloch says:

    I have been following Marie for several years and am a fan of hers on Facebook, as well as a reading friend on her website. I enjoy her books and recently bought the Quiltmaker magazine with her new pattern in it. I would love to win her new book!

  39. Karen Pollard says:

    Not only is Marie a super talented writer, her quilts are absolutely gorgeous. I love reading her books because when she talks about quilting, you know she is familiar with the whole process. When I read her books, I get lost in her characters. I find her character development to be one of the very best!

  41. Priscilla Benson says:

Kudos to Marie for supporting women and families caught in domestic violence–definitely a dirty little social disease.

  69. Landa T. says:
