The New York Times bestseller celebrates one of America’s most romantic and enduring traditions

As her daughter’s wedding day approaches, Sarah McClure reflects upon Elm Creek brides past and present—the traditions they honored, the legacies they bequeathed, the wedding quilts that contain their stories in every stitch.

Unexpectedly, Caroline confides, “I wish I had a wedding quilt, one I made myself.” Sarah yearns to grant her fervent wish, but even the most talented novice would be daunted by the task of stitching, mere days before the wedding, a worthy symbol of the couple’s bonds of love, commitment, trust, and hope for the future. Turning to her cherished friends, the Elm Creek Quilters, Sarah asks them to pool their creative gifts. As the women stitch, their memories render a vivid pastiche of family, friendship, and love in all its varieties.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 2/16/2014

    " I listened to this book and found it interesting. It sounds like one of several by this author but since I have not read any of the previous books I am not sure. The story is fairly predictable but entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carissa | 2/15/2014

    " Such a beautiful story. Wrapped up so much details for each character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy S | 2/12/2014

    " A pleasant enough story, easy on the mind. I will go back and read the first of this series, and perhaps more than that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/11/2014

    " Heart-warming story of friendship and love and lots of quilts! Enjoyable series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toby | 2/1/2014

    " Another Elm Creek Manor book. This one is about Sarah's daughter's wedding. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 1/28/2014

    " I'm not entirely sure how I felt about this book. On one hand I absolutely loved knowing how everyone's stories ended up. This book takes place when Sarah and Matt's twins are 25 so you get to see what happened to each of the characters in the 25 years since the last book takes place. But part of me absolutely hated knowing that some of the founding members had passed on (even though it was obvious that they would have in those 25 years due to their age throughout the series). I had a really hard time picturing the other founding members at their advanced ages too. I didn't want to think about them being old and retiring! I wanted everything to stay the same even though I liked knowing what all happened! There was also a lot of jumping around on the setting of the book. Some was present day, some was 25 years in the future, some was in between those times. A few other scenes gave more information about things that had happened with Sylvia's family around the Civil War time period. So a lot of loose ends were tied up but at the same time it was very bittersweet having things tied up. There were also a lot of recaps of things that happened in previous books, which was nice on one hand since it had been a while since I read the last one, but somewhat redundant. I did also find myself wanting more details about the stories that took place between now and 25 years from now instead of just the little glimpses into what happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Smith | 1/24/2014

    " This was a strange book, starting 25 years on from the previous Aloha Quilt, and then jumping around in no particular order. It seemed to me that the author wanted to tie up some loose ends and this was the way to do it. Not my favourite Elm Creek book by a long way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Agnes | 1/16/2014

    " Really tried to reads this but found it mostly reminisences of previous books of the Elm Creek Quilters. Never was that much into this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sasha | 1/13/2014

    " Liked the ending...but wasn't too thrilled with the rest of the book. Too much playing catch up and jumping all around to tie up loose ends. Would have preferred a new story rather than a recap. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susanne | 1/10/2014

    " What happened to all of the wonderful characters? 20 years has passed and many that you have come love are now deceased. Really? This is not the way to wrap up a series (presuming that is what the author was doing). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Virginia Albanese | 12/16/2013

    " I wonder if this is the last of the series? If not it is getting just to tedious to read synoposis of each of her other books, I suppose to fill in new readers? There was so much not new in this book and they seem to getting too trite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 12/11/2013

    " Details the wedding of Sarah & Matt's daughter, Caroline. Set in the near future, it brings a lot of Elm Creek Quilters back to the fold. Very entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 12/10/2013

    " I have gotten so attached to the main characters, this book made me sad because it takes place after several of the main characters have died. There are a lot of flashbacks to tie the story together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marlene | 8/27/2013

    " Did not enjoy this book. This is the 1st Elm Creek novel that I skimmed through so I could just get through it. I didn,t care how it ended or the whole story in general. A real disappoinmet, because I truly loved reading the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andijkl | 6/28/2013

    " It is so sad to finally catch up on this series. There are no more left. I felt like we missed a lot of time from the last one to this one. I think there could have been a few more books in between and I love this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 4/18/2013

    " Great book! I didn't think I was going to like it, as it seemed to be a lot of stories from past Elm Creek Quilter books. But I really did enjoy it! Again, Jennifer Chiaverini is one of my favorite authors! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Davis | 1/31/2013

    " What a wonderful book. I have read all of the Elm Creek Quilts series and this one was especially good because it covered all the years... Where do you go from here Jennifer... Outstanding book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/22/2012

    " fast forward to 2028 and find out what happens to EVERYONE who has ever been in a Elm Creek quilting novel. one generation has passed, the new generation has the Manor and we learn what will happen next. I do believe this is the last one, folks. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Audrey | 10/22/2012

    " I could not get into this book!! I really tried. I kept skipping ahead thinking it would get better but it just wasn't doing it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 8/17/2012

    " Didn't think i was going to like a book so far inthe future from the last book...but she did a good job of catching us up. Just hope it is not the end of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juanita | 7/3/2012

    " I have read most of the books in this series. I liked the story, but since it has jumped 20+ years into the future, most of the book was about back stories. I found the jumping around between the future and the years between disjointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/27/2012

    " More like 3 1/2 stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan McF | 1/20/2012

    " Too much rehashing of past stories. Nobody would be starting on book 18 of a series would they? Very disappointed since I loved the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Sage | 1/6/2012

    " Loved the way the author reminisced about all other stories throughout this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 11/28/2011

    " Loved following up on all the characters, but PLEASE read the others first!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 10/27/2011

    " As always the Elm Creek nvel didnt dissapoint. "
