Christina McCourt ––
Create quilts inspired by beloved characters Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher.
Having lived just outside of Hannibal, Missouri, all of her life, Christina McCourt became immersed in all things Mark Twain. The sweet and simple projects in this book are dedicated to his beloved characters Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher and their budding romance. The centerpiece of the collection is the sampler quilt, in which each block represents Tom, Becky, or the people and adventures in their lives. The quilts Becky’s Waltz and Tom’s Fancy stand out as wonderful examples of Christina’s eye for color and pattern. Other quilt projects include the graphic and colorful Lost in the Cave quilt and the Poor Boy Huck quilt.
