Calling All Elm Creek Quilt Book Fans!!

Look what I've got my hands on!! A companion guide to everything ELM CREEK!  If you have read all the books and want even more, you will want this. If you've ever lost track of who is who while reading one of the Elm Creek Quilt books you can refer to this book. 

Hmmmm, who is Charles Davis? You could turn to his name (alphabetically, of course) and see he was in The Quilter's Legacy novel, and was the Boston landlord, and later husband, of Amelia Langley Davis. In a letter to Eleanor Lockwood Bergstrom, Amelia describes him as her "dear friend and comrade."


Do you want to know more about Elm Creek Manor? This book will bring you on a guided tour!

Would you like to own it? You can! Just leave me a comment and tell me your favorite Elm Creek book, or your favorite character and why. If you are a no reply blogger, please leave me your email address so I can contact you easily.

I'll announce the winner Saturday morning November 16.

This drawing is CLOSED!

  1. Hi Lori
    I think I especially liked reading The Lost Quilter. It took me back in time and I was very unhappy when it ended, I wanted more!
    I would love to win this book.
    Get some sewing in today!

  2. I would love to win this book. I like all of the books, but especially The Sugar Bush quilt because growing up in NE Ohio I helped in my grandfather's sugar bush where we tapped 500 trees on his land and the adjoining farm my uncle owned. Many happy days, and lots of work involved. I remember on warm days sitting on a big rock near the edge of the creek that ran through the property and daydreamed and listened to the lulling sound of the water. We have made it on our property, but now one of our sons does that, and unfortunately with my fructose intolerance I can no longer eat it, but I remember the fragrance of the sap boiling and the steam rising our of the open part of the roof of the building where we boiled at Grandpa's. They had built a fireplace on which the big pan and two smaller pans sat, and it would take four foot long logs to keep the fire going. The sap was stored in an underground cistern on the hill above the building and piped to the pan, with a spigot to regulate the flow. Probably more than what you wanted to hear, but those were happy memories..

    1. Dear Jean, Not more than we wanted to hear, but a delightful story. I never knew that about a cistern piping sap to the pan. I can tell you had a wonderful childhood.

    2. Dearest Jean, your comment was not too long. I found it to be an interesting story, and I learned something about a cistern being used to pipe sap to the pan. You must have had a very nice childhood.

  3. My favorite book was The Runaway Quilt, I have read it twice. (And, of course, The Lost Quilter, that continues Joanna's story) I am now reading Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker. I love Civil War era history novels. I would love to win this book.

    Thanks so much for having this giveaway.

  4. My favorite was The Sugar Camp Quilt. I loved the story of her gruff uncle having her make the quilt and then ruining it and she was so upset only to find out later that it was for the purpose of saving lives. I loved that story.

  5. My favorite is always the most recently read, which for me is the Aloha Quilt. I loved the setting of Hawaii, and I could really relate to the struggle of the main character. I also loved how the support of her quilting friends grounds her and although their choices seem "wrong" at the time, eventually it became apparent that everything was as it needed to be. Great book!

  6. I love these books! I started reading them soon after I was introduced to quilting - they really cam alive and I even learned from them! It's hard to choose a favorite, but I guess it is The Master Quilter. I'm crossing my fingers!

  7. I loved them all...can;t pick a fav. Would really enjoy this companion book.

  8. I love listening to these books while sewing. They're interesting and easy to lose yourself in. I love the book Sonoma Rose

  9. My favorite book from the series is The Runaway Quilt. I love all her books. I have not gotten The Elm Creek Quilts Companion book yet and would love to win a copy! I have read most of the books in her series twice already and want to reread them again this winter, the Companion book would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win. (My favorite character is Gerda.)

  10. I could really use this guide. I've read many of these books but out of order and over many years. I do get confused on who is who.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have read most of the books, and I think I like the earlier books the best. I can't decide between Round Robin or Cross Country Quilters as my favorite. Both books showed clearly the importance of friendships and how quilting and the quilting community help these women in their personal lives.

  22. My favorite Elm Creek book is The Lost Quilter. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once. A very good read. Thanks for the chance to win an Elm Creek Quilts Companion. That would be a fun addition to my collection.

  26. They are all my favorites, I love Jennifer's writing skills, she makes me beg for more. Her books always end and you just know that with patience she will have a continuing saga on the market very soon. I have reread my books so many times. Have them all, including pattern books, just need this one to round out the collection.

  29. hard to choose but since i have to choose it would be the circle of quilters...the intrigue of learning about the new people and who will be chosen to teach and why made this a hard-to-put-down volume

  30. My FAVORITE Elm Creek Novel is The very first one.The Apprentice. It got me hooked and I have read most every one. And can't wait for the next one. Thing is, I was never a big reader until then. Thanks for the oppertunity to win such a great part of this serios

  33. I hate to admit that I have not yet read any of Jennifer Chiaverini's books. Our guild Librarian is wonderful and gives a book recommendation in each newsletter, so I know where I can start. I guess this would be a good reference to have on hand. Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have read all of Jennifer Chiaverini's books. . . . and I must admit, some of the characters have slipped my mind, so having an "encyclopedia" of all the characters would be wonderful!

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  37. My favorite Jennifer C. book is always the last one I read. I finished "The Aloha Quilt" a few weeks ago, but then I read "The Union Quilters." I enjoyed both very much. And for those who haven't read both, they're set in different locales and different eras. Both are very entertaining. Thanks for the giveaway, Lori.

  41. I've so enjoyed all the Elm Creek books - I started with the Quilter's Apprentice, a present from my Mum.

  42. I recently read The Union Quilters and loved it, so maybe it is my favorite. I haven't read too many of her books and just now I looked up her web site and was surprised to see how many books she has written. I think I'll try to read all her books and the companion would be very handy to have. I always get characters confused and sometimes will write myself a note with their names and relationships.

  43. I was gifted with The Aloha Quilt and really enjoyed it, thanks for the chance to win.

  49. I thought I commented before but can't see that I did (so forgive me if this is a duplicate). I've read all of the books (I think) and enjoyed each one. Don't think I could pick a favorite--it's always the one I'm reading. Suggested this series to my mother-in-law, and she's been tearing through them in record speed. (I'm going to have to come up with a new series for her after Christmas!). Thanks for the chance to win!

  70. Hmm, I was sure I already commented, but I cannot find it anywhere! So I'll try again.

    I've read the first 6 Elm Creek books so far and my favorite is The Quilter's Apprentice. That is the only one I've read several times. I just love it. It is also the reason I've finally started quilting after years of drooling over quiltbooks.

  71. Oooo..Juniper Flats is beautiful. I would like to win. I love to combine reading w/ quilting.

  72. I'm reading them totally out of order with the latest being A Quilter's Holiday. I really enjoyed the idea of the day after Thanksgiving, now known as "Black Friday" in the US, being a day of relaxed quilting with friends, with the emphasis on doing for others instead of getting the best deal. Looking forward to instituting that as a tradition in my house! Thanks for the giveaway!

  76. I've enjoyed reading the Elm Creek books --- they seem to hark back to a simpler time. In reality, I know they had problems and issues to deal with --- but I still think life was a bit slower. I sometimes envy that. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book --- it looks wonderful.
