Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/15/2014

    " Another example of the strength of this series, this book is about staffing changes at Elm Creek. It tells the stories of the departing quilters and of those who interview for the jobs. Followed by several disapointing, historical fiction entries. I much prefer the modern perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 2/13/2014

    " This one was fun, following the lives of four of the characters people (not all female!) who apply for the two job openings at the Elm Creek quilt camp. We saw what led them into quilting, and how they come and present themselves at the camp. It's a little suspenseful wondering who's going to be chosen, and wondering, too, about the lives of the two members who are leaving... This was one of my more favorite books of the series. I liked the true love and joy the women have together, and bringing in the new characters is a spot of interest for us readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 1/30/2014

    " This is a gentle book, a nice interesting one about the lives of several people from all over the country in completely different life situations coming to one place to apply for a job and a new life. I really did enjoy it and hope to read more of her series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hello56 | 1/30/2014

    " I really liked this one, maybe even one of my favorites in the series. You get to meet a hand full of new people and interact with our old favorite quilters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/28/2014

    " Very good books. I have 2 of the set. Have read some from the library, and some from the quilt guild library, but have not finished the set. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tinker | 1/25/2014

    " This was more about personalities, less quilt details. Well done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/23/2014

    " Good but a little predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/21/2014

    " I so much enjoyed the new characters and delving into their lives as they all consider how they can become "Elm Creek Quilters." I want them to all have the opportunity, though I know there is really only space for 2. Though, just pursuing the position helps their lives in ways they couldn't have foreseen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scilla | 1/19/2014

    " This is very similar to the other books in the series. I enjoy reading about quilting, but it's not great literature. There is the usual sad part with one of the quilting family having difficult times, but all is well in the end. The characters are fairly well developed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/26/2013

    " YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH ANY OF THIS SERIES "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/24/2013

    " I very much enjoyed this one. I've read a couple of others from the series but I especially enjoyed the different stories of each of the quilters told in this book. It prompted me to get the next one in the series right away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 9/20/2013

    " #9 in the Elm Creek Quilts series. Some of the original teachers are leaving and an ad is placed to find replacements. This book looks at the lives of 5 possible choices. Good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 9/19/2013

    " This book made me want to quilt! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Tilton | 5/24/2013

    " Would not stand alone. It was a good introduction to new characters who will appear in future books, but there really wasn't a central story. Only interesting for those already reading the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Wolowik | 5/26/2012

    " My fav thus far. I listened to it on CD while driving and was really lovely to listen to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patti | 5/10/2012

    " Now I want to read the rest of this Elm Creek Quilts novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 11/19/2011

    " Really well developed characters, you find yourself rooting for all of them to get the job! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katri | 6/15/2011

    " Truth be told, I didn't get through the second chapter. The characters were whiny and lame. I couldn't stand it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 5/31/2011

    " I liked how the author told us about the characters lifes before they went to Elm Creek Manor for their interviews. It gave me an insight about how other people feel about applying for jobs. It also told us about their lifes and how they started quilting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 5/3/2011

    " But what quilt block did they choose??

    This read more like short stories: the backstory of five quilters who applied to join the staff of Elm Creek Quilts.

    I think I'm realizing something else that appeals to me about this series: all the people associated with computer science! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 3/4/2011

    " I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in the series but this one I had a VERY hard time putting down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/28/2011

    " Another good book if you like quilting; this one evolves around the characters applying for a position as a quilt instructor at a quilting camp. Good character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Apallant | 2/27/2011

    " I totally love these books. I think because they focus on womans lives and how the craft is the expression of their lives. It is sweet book as are the others. Not brilliant, not great literature. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/21/2011

    " Not my favorite book of hers, but it was okay. Two of the storylines in particular were interesting to me. I like Chiaverini's historical fiction in this series better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tinker | 2/8/2011

    " This was more about personalities, less quilt details. Well done! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/2/2011

    " Light reading mystery, anyone who is a sewer or quilter would enjoy this easy read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/29/2010

    " Reread after seeing it on a focus shelf at the library -- I like this series, but especially like this one, probably because I'd love to have an interview and get a job like this! And I identify both with the person who loves to cook and the others who love to quilt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avalon91 | 12/13/2010

    " Great character studies. Even non quilters would enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kw | 9/10/2010

    " Really enjoyable except for Karen and those horrid, bratty kids.
    So glad things ended the way they did for all concerned. A fun
    read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 8/20/2010

    " I enjoyed it enough that I look forward to reading more of her books. "
