2019 Quilters' Quest Shop Hop

We are going on a Book Tour
Dive into the pages of your favorite books
for 10 Days of Fun, Friends & Prizes

2019 Quest Quilts and Quest Cuts Colors
are reminiscent of the covers of our favorite, well-read books.

Written by 
Johns Hopkins University
Professor, David A. Taylor

Our featured book, "Cork Wars,"
involves three families in World War II
caught up in immigration, spies and cork.
It’s a story about how cork—from cork oak
forests around the Mediterranean—
was a
big deal in the mid-20th century.
Germany cut supplies
with the Atlantic blockade,
cork companies and their workers got embroiled
in a life-and-death
geopolitical struggle.
What began as a trade in bark and bottle caps
quickly spun
into a global drama with sabotage
espionage, and profiteering.

Cork is the bark of trees. 
It keeps regenerating after being removed.
It played a big part in WWII
and Baltimore’s part in it.
The best is grown in Portugal and Spain.
