New characters for the Elm Street Quilters
on September 22, 2015
Listening to this story, or group of stories, on Audible was a pleasure! I haven't read the all books in the series that led up to this one. In fact, I've only read Round Robin, which is the second in the series. It made no difference because in this book the author is introducing new characters to the group of Elm Creek Quilters.
It seems they are in need of two additional intructors and we, the readers, get to meet the applicants and peek into their lives. Besides the well drawn characters and intriguing plot, the author includes a good amount of actual quilting - hand and machine.
We learn about some of the history behind this textile art as well as different techniques for traditional quilts and some information on how to design quilt patterns. And it is all seamlessly incorporated into the story.
I highly recommend this book, and if you have the opportunity, try the Audible version. It's great to listen to while you sew your own quilt.
