“Why do you give?” asks Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstrom Compson Cooper in The Giving Quilt, New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini’s artful, inspiring novel that imagines what good would come from practicing the holiday spirit each and every day of the year.

At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is “Quiltsgiving,” a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt-shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp, to make quilts for Project Linus.

Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, uses her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. As the week unfolds, the quilters respond to Sylvia’s provocative question in ways as varied as the life experiences that drew them to Elm Creek Manor. Love and comfort are sewn into the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they stitch, and their stories collectively consider the strength of human connection and its rich rewards.

Featuring not only well-loved characters but also intriguing newcomers, The Giving Quilt will remind us all that giving from the heart blesses the giver as much as the recipient, and while giving may not always be easy, it is always worthwhile.

    " Chiaverini is back! I was disappointed in the last couple books but this one was delightful. I was still left wishing for a better overarching story, but the new characters were fun and dynamic. The quilting descriptions left me eager to get to work on my sewing machine. The ending was very abrupt but overall, the book was a fun read for quilters. "

    " Another good book in the Elm Creek series-well written and thoughful. I liked the question "Why do you give". A little too much description of the quilting process for a non quilter but the concerns of the quilters were a reflection of the times, especially the concerns of Linnea who is a librarian in a small town. As a volunteer for a library her concerns mirror many libraries. "

    " Makes me want to finish the quilt I started 8years ago. Was really hoping this was a real place. "
