Tracy talks about her first quilt which is on show at the London Quilters Exhibition ‘Coming Home’
Tracy Chevalier FRSL is an American historical novelist. She has written seven novels: she is best known for her second novel, Girl with a Pearl Earring, which was made into a 2003 film, starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth but her latest book ‘The Last Runaway’ has a quilting theme and it is through her research for this where the quilter moves from the UK over to America, that Tracy became fascinated by quilting and ended up making her very own quilt – by hand too.
Welcome to the world of patchwork and quilting Tracy – do you think we need to warn her that it can be addictive?!
