Amid the rush and haste of life, many people seek rest and quiet in community life. Quilters find community in common goals and activities. They talk of needles and thread, fabric and stitches, and bedcovers and pieces of art. They gather in homes, fabric shops, and convention centers to share their ideas and projects.
Many quilters are also homemakers. Some treat both cooking and quilting as high art forms. Others work hard to prepare varied and healthful meals for their busy families and quilt when they have free time.
From Shrimp and Crab Salad to Hungarian Cucumber Salad to Grape Salad, these Salad recipes are both practical and delicious. Those who love to quilt and those who love to cook will share in the special vibrancy of this small collection.
