We are back with some dear friends, and updated on the lives we have come to love, and now we are back at Elm Creek!

After seven years, the Elm Creek Quilt series has returned, and I could not be happier. I've read and loved the entire series and revisiting each of the beloved characters did not disappoint. It's difficult to believe that it's been ...more
While I know many who religiously attend the state fairs entering quilting contests it's a respectable and difficult task that the mostly all women grouping manage to make look effortless.
The ending leaves us in awe of the beauty behind such a skill that has taken years to master.
So with this said, I hold great respect for ...more
This is my first book of this series and I have to say it was a bit disappointing. Too much blahblahblah in between the storylines. The ending was rushed into a few pages and some storylines were left hanging. I was really looking forward to reading this, and while the basic story was good, it felt very mediocre.
It has been quite a few years since the last Elm Creek Quilters book, so I was excited to ...more
It would be fine for someone who was reading this book as a stand alone title. But even though it's been more than 10 years since I read the previous books, it felt like a verbatim recap.

This was such a heartwarming story of some heartfelt women that share a passion for quilting and making an overwhelming amount and love to give. I was refreshed when I saw that these women held their Christmas boutique in a church bringing forth so many people that is a blessing to share their gifts. Even when life ...more

This book is the latest addition to the #ElmCreekQuilts series by @jenniferchiaveriniauthor. I absolutely adored it! You apparently don't need to read the series in order, but I've purchased book 1, #TheQuiltersApprentice and can't wait to dive in at the series' start!
In the book, we meet a series of women, of all different ages, and the author manages to keep each character distinct and each woman's voice unique. Elm Creek Valley in ...more
