Three complete novels, The Runaway Quilt, The
Quilter's Legacy, and The Master Quilter, from
New York Times bestselling author Jennifer
Join the Elm Creek Quilters on their
continuing adventures through American history past and
present, told from the unique perspective of the creative
artists known as quilters.
The Runaway Quilt:
Alerted that her family may have had ties to the
slaveholding South, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson searches her
attic for her great-grandmother's quilt, a log cabin with
black central squares that, according to legend, was a sign
of sanctuary to escaping slaves. She also discovers the
memoir of her great-grandfather's spinster sister, Gerda
Bergstrom. The record reveals not only the founding of Elm
Creek Manor, but also a Pennsylvania farming community
divided by the issue of slavery. With the help of the Elm
Creek Quilters and the clues in her ancestors' quilts,
Sylvia grapples with hard truths in coming to terms with her
The Quilter's Legacy: Resolving
to locate her mother's heirloom quilts, Sylvia embarks on a
cross-country investigation of antiques shops, quilt
museums, and some unexpected places, where offers of
assistance are not always what they seem. As Sylvia recovers
some of the missing quilts and accepts others as lost
forever, she reflects on the woman her mother was and mourns
the woman she never knew.
The Master Quilter:
Wedding bells are ringing in the ears of the Elm Creek
Quilters. Their own Sylvia planned her holiday wedding with
sweetheart Andrew in complete secrecy. Eager to honor the
newlyweds, the Elm Creek Quilters hasten to stitch a bridal
quilt for their favorite Master Quilter. As the quilt blocks
accumulate, the Elm Creek Quilters celebrate the joys of new
beginnings and the ongoing success of their business --
until forces conspire to threaten their happiness and
prosperity. Will the burden of closely guarded secrets
strain the bonds of friendship?
"A shared love for
quilting," The Hartford Courant has observed, "helps
bring women together. Quilters always welcome new ones and
share what they know...in the popular Elm Creek Quilts
novels." Here in An Elm Creek Quilts Album, Jennifer
Chiaverini's captivating storytelling enacts the enduring
wisdom of a joyful sisterhood of family and friends.
