After enjoying the Benni Harper books for years I thought this might be interesting - and so it is, sort of. I enjoyed seeing some of the places used as inspiration for the books, but didn't think much of the short stories, more like diary entries or reminiscences really - just not long enough. I didn't feel inspired to "dash off" any of the quilts either although most are interesting - and pretty unique for a change. The applique ones are OK if you're into cowboys or mexican gardens complete with fountain, turtles and donkey, and there's a very unusual Path in the Wilderness quilt using curves and bow tie blocks in a way I've never seen before. The patterns are on a separate sheet at the back (the applique bits and embroidery placement pieces etc).
Worth adding to the collection but only if you can buy at a good price.

Fantastic 22 April 2005
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The quilt patterns in this book are GORGEOUS! If I didn't quilt, I'd buy the book just to look at the pictures. And the short stories are just terrific. What a treat to read more about Benni, her family and friends.

more benni! 21 April 2005
By Elizabeth Slater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a book featuring instructions and photos on how to create some of the wonderfully described quilts in Fowler's Benni Harper series. In between, or in addition to, the directions, there are short stories involving the characters from the novels that are NOT included in the regular novels. I love how Fowler writes, and her characters seem like friends.

Beautiful Book 30 May 2005
By Sally - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am not a quilter but this book makes me wish I was one. I loved the pitures of the beautiful quilts and especially the stories that go with each one. I am a Bennie Harper fan and have read all the Bennie Harper mysteries. I love each of the charaters, everytime I read one of the books I feel like I'm visiting with old friends. As for the one review comparing Gabe to Scott Peterson it's ridiculous. Gabe has never been abusive or told blatant lies about his life. Liz if you have a problem with romance novels go get on your soap box in the correct forum where is may actually apply.

Benni Harper stories and quilts: you supply the cup of tea 30 May 2005
By Teresa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This quilt album is more than quilts and pictures. It's the stories behind the stories in the books. Each chapter gives a better picture of Benni, Gabe, Dove and the others. I must completely disagree with what one person wrote comparing Gabe to the murderer Scott Peterson! Say what? I do not see the comparison at all. And, as for Gabe "owning" Benni - well, Benni IS the strongest character in the book and I cannot see her letting anyone ever own her. For me, reading each story was pure enjoyment.

wonderful gifts of stories and great quilts 1 Jun 2005
By Laura A. R. Wingfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First, I am a major fan of Earlene's books and a quilter and this book is the perfect marriage of the two. I loved the quilt patterns but really loved the stories that added insight into stories we've already read. I cannot for the life of me figure out what books Liz was reading to find such off the wall connections to Earlene's characters, especially the Scott Peterson to Gabe reference but these people are very realistic and like real people have flaws. I personally don't want to read about perfect people, I want to read about people who learn and grow. I loved the story of the blue turtle especially because it shows you a little bit of Gabe's soul. I've had a crush on Gabe since the first book and he just isn't anything like Scott Peterson. If you love the Benni Harper books or quilts, this is just a great addition. I gave several out as gifts. You can't go wrong with anything written by Earlene Fowler.
