Who Has Seen the Wind
Coincidentally, shortly before I began work on the quilt I came across some kind of a list of books to challenge a book discussion group. I wrote down the titles of some of them and got one that I'd never heard of from the library. W. O. Mitchell wrote Who Has Seen the Wind a long time ago. It is in the "boy coming of age" genre, but different in many ways. I liked the book very much
The wind is blowing in many directions on this quilt. I don't see the wind, but I see the effects of the wind, and that is more or less what the book was about. So this quilt will be called Who Has Seen the Wind and will go off to the machine quilter later this month. It is intended as a Christmas gift.
I hope you like my North Wind blocks quilt. And if you read and liked Penrod or A Separate Peace or others of that ilk, you just might like the book, too.
