The Elm Creek Quilters are at it again!
This time, the story revolves around "Quiltsgiving": a week-long retreat in which 20 quilters gather at Elm Creek Manor to make quilts for Project Linus.
The book opens with a brief introduction of the main characters you'll be familiar with from the other novels, a quick peek at each of the quilters attending the retreat and an introduction to Elm Creek Manor. Each of the chapters focus is on a particular quilter - giving their background story and why they're there. At the end of the retreat, the quilters we've been introduced to go home, and we learn the resolution of their story.
Along the way, we get a glimpse of the quilt that's been designed for Quiltsgiving - the pattern is not yet available on Ms. Chiaverini's site, but I'm sure it will be soon if you'd like to try making it.
This is the first book in the Elm Creek Quilts series I've read (although I did read Sonoma Rose and really enjoyed it). If you're an Elm Creek Quilts reader, you're really going to like it - and if you're a first time reader of the series like I am, you'll be able to follow along with no problem whatsoever.
If you'd like to win a copy of this book, just leave a comment saying so today or tomorrow, and I'll announce the winner on Friday (when I'll be revealing a new finish, as well).
I'll forward your information to the publisher and they'll send you the book. Easey peasey!
See you on Friday!
