Acknowledgment

My thanks to Marnette Falley for introducing me to the world of quilting, for researching and designing the star quilt pattern, and for welcoming me into her Persian Pickles sewing group. Additional thanks to all the Pickles for sharing their amazing art and for their help in designing Selma’s anniversary quilt. And a special thanks to Nancy Pickard — my mystery-writing mentor and muse — whose friendship, advice and encouragement made this book possible.

To Don, Todd, Aria, and Danny — with great love.
