A box arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t full of new books from Amazon … or writing supplies (like I need any more notebooks and pens!).

It contained a very cool quilt — a quilt I won in a giveaway over at the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood blog when one of the Rubies, Kelly Fitzpatrick, was celebrating the launch of her book, “Lilly in Wonderland.”

Kelly’s tagline is “Bad girls need love, too.” She promises:

  • No shrinking violets
  • No helpless damsels in distress
  • No doormats
  • No virgins (unless they sneak in while she’s not looking)

In keeping with that, the quilt features a fun, strong-woman motif.

You can read an excerpt from the book here. It hooked me. I’m definitely going to hunt it down.
