The Elm Creek Quilts novels keep getting better! Do start with the first in the series and go through them chronologically, as the stories build from book to book. I loved getting to know women new to Elm Creek Quilters. It was interesting to notice that the new women we read about in depth became friends with each other and not with quilters who had been there before. I've seen this happen in other settings too. hmmm....

This was a good book once you got through all the menutia (sp) of the beginning. Each story, as per her usual style, of the characters was interesting. I wanted instructions for the quilt and found them on a very interesting Elm Creek Quilts website. I would recommend this book.
