I'm confused by a couple of the other reviews that stated they loved the characters and that those characters were well described. First, of all, I think there are too many of them -- mainly in the quilting group -- and none of them are described at all, other than the older ones have gray hair. I remember one of them was short and stout; another was "trim". The author spent more time describing the scenery, which was nice, but not enough to make we want to read any more in this series. Plus, it's not as though Harriet solved the crime because of all the great clues. Yes, that's sarcasm, and, no, she didn't really solve it. I don't usually do this, but I skipped to the end.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I am a fan now. There was murder, mystery, drama, fun and quilting. My kinda book. While I am an experienced quilter I felt the quilting explanations were too frequent and a bit unnecessary. A quilt term was used correctly but then the term was explained pretty throughly. I believe the majority of the readers would be quilters and don't need detailed explanations like that. Maybe she's lightened up in the next book Other than that the story interesting. I am looking forward to the next book.

As a debut novel in a new series, I must say this book was a complete and satisfying murder mystery. Easily stands alone yet makes you interested enough in the main character, Harriet Truman, to keep you wanting to learn more about her.

The main sleuth is Harriet Truman, no relative, at least as of yet, to the Presidential family. Harriet is a widow, betrayed by her husband's choice to not let her know he was dying. She moves back to be with her Aunt Beth, only to find that Aunt Beth has left her the quilt business and house.

There is a regional quilt show and tensions mount among the quilters. Harriet is kept occupied with finishing the 'show quilts' when the leading contender, Avanell Jalbert, owner of the Vitamin Factory, is brutally murdered at work. Next thing, Harriet is attacked, quilts destroyed and more.

Harriet has to find out what is happening. Romance shows it's head in the Son of the deceased and also a fellow worker of Avanell's. Only time will tell if this widow can survive and live to love again.

A good series.

If you’re a quilter and enjoy cozy mysteries, you’ll love this book. Apart from a briefly confusing duplication of chapter eleven (which apparently escaped the proofreader’s eye—hence 4 stars), the story abounds with engaging characters, appealing details, and intriguing plot twists. Looking forward to Harriet’s next adventure!

This was a great book! Loved the characters and the quilting descriptions. I thought the author did a beautiful job with intros and descriptions. I read it in a day, and promptly moved to the second book in the series, and can't wait for others to follow. I accidentally ordered two, and it was so good, I'll be passing it along to my quilting friends. I love the fact that there is now a longarm mystery series, although, as a longarm quilter myself, I've never completed a show quilt in one day! I really appreciated how the author described different types of customers in this industry - most are wonderful, but every once in a while, we do get the difficult ones! Quilt as Desired was well written, and moved along at a great pace - a page turner! Great job!

even tho I am not even close to quilting!! I enjoyed "meeting" all the people, being included in the events surrounding them (and the mystery) from page 1 and couldn't wait to reach the end. That fact kept me turning the pages so quickly that I couldn't believe it when the last page was done!! Lucky for me I was smart enough to order all three titles at the same time, so I merely headed off to my bookshelf and now I can go over to the page for "Quilter's Knot" and give that one a 5-star review as well!

I hope all you people out there who love a good mystery with good people will take advantage of this book and enjoy it without the feeling one needs to be sew crafty!!
lets go baby
I had the very good fortune to meet Arlene Sachitano unexpectedly while on a quilt tour and she is so gracious and friendly that any review of this book is going to be prejudiced! I bought this book directly from her and she signed it with a personal message. I do feel comfortable recommending it to you, however, and think you will find this entire series is well and intelligently written. I find Harriet a like able character and this is a good way to meet her.
I enjoyed reading this book. The quilting "rules" are interesting for me as a quilter. I assume the author was tongue in cheek about these requirements because I do not always follow the rules and have fairly good results with my quilting projects.
