Twenty years after the publication of The Quilterâ€™s
Apprentice, the novel that launched the beloved Elm Creek
Quilts series, New York Times bestselling author Jennifer
Chiaverini returns with another delightful chapter
featuring Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstom Compson and
friends, a captivating, heartwarming tale sure to become
a holiday favorite.
Just weeks before Christmas, severe wintry weather
damages the church hall hosting the Christmas Boutiqueâ€”an
annual sale of handcrafted gifts and baked goods that
supports the county food pantry. Determined to save the
fundraiser, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson offers to hold the
event at Elm Creek Manor, her ancestral family estate and
summertime home to Elm Creek Quilt Camp.
In the spirit of the season, Sylvia and the Elm Creek
Quilters begin setting up market booths in the ballroom
and decking the halls with beautiful hand-made holiday
quilts. Each of the quilters chooses a favorite quilt to
display, a special creation evoking memories of holidays
past and dreams of Christmases yet to come. Sarah, a
first-time mother expecting twins, worries if she can
handle raising two babies, especially with her husband so
often away on business. Cheerful, white-haired Agnes
reflects upon a beautiful appliquÃ© quilt she made as a
young bride and the mysterious, long-lost antique quilt
that inspired it. Empty nesters and occasional rivals
Gwen and Diane contemplate family heirlooms and
unfinished projects as they look forward to having their
children home again for the holidays.
But while the Elm Creek Quilters work tirelessly to make
sure the Christmas Boutique happens, it may take a
holiday miracle or two to make it the smashing success
they want it to be.
