    I love this book I m a longtime fan of Jennifer Chiaverini s novels, especially her Elm Creek Quilts series I was inspired by this how to book and I loved the accompanying snippets of Elm Creek novels I m a self taught quilter and I found the projects in this book to be daunting I need the Elm Creek Quilt Camp to give me hands on lessons I wish it existed in real life.

    This book, and the novels, inspired me to try quilting When I stsrted, I did not even own needle or thread After trial and error, I completed Sylvia s Sampler great directions, and nice companion to the novels.

    This book is essentially a pattern book with quilt patterns from the first four books in the Elm Creek Quilts series It was great to see pictures of the quilts and how they shaped up to the pictures I had in my head after reading the books.

    This is a memoir of the author s life and interest in quilts, and how quilts became part of her novels It is kind of interesting, and there are quilt patterns for many of her books for people who are interested in making them.

    On a quest to find quilting patterns and instructions, I checked four books out of the library including this one and Return to Elm Creek They are basically pattern books for some really pretty quilts When I got home and started lookingclosely, I realized that the quilts are based on a series of novels, the Elm Creek Quilts novels The patterns and photos are great, the excerpts from the novels sound god awful The quilt I chose to make a simpler version of is Vinnie s Double Pinwheel On a quest to find quilting patterns and instructions, I checked four books out of the library including this one and Return to Elm Creek They are basically pattern books for some really pretty quilts When I got home and started lookingclosely, I realized that the quilts are based on a series of novels, the Elm Creek Quilts novels The patterns and photos are great, the excerpts from the novels sound god awful The quilt I chose to make a simpler version of is Vinnie s Double Pinwheel The quote for that one was about an old lady declaring that her favorite memory was her surprise birthday party Then her friend whose eyes glint with merriment says that s what she said last year This is what happens to humor when you are too afraid of hurting someone s feelings, people
