Book Description

The Master Quilter opens with the sound of wedding bells ringing in the ears of the Elm Creek Quilters. The close-knit group can hardly believe that their own Sylvia Compson planned her holiday wedding to sweetheart Andrew in complete secrecy, without the help of even one of her friends. Eager to honor the newlyweds, the Elm Creek Quilters hasten to stitch a bridal quilt for their favorite Master Quilter. Until the time comes to unveil the surprise gift, they reason, Sylvia will be the one in the dark.
Such little white lies seem harmless enough, especially in the service of future happiness. Yet Elm Creek Manor, and the quilting retreat established there by the Elm Creek Quilters, thrives on the strength of women sharing their creativity, their challenges, and their dreams. Somehow, in the race to commemorate in Sylvia's bridal quilt all that they hold dear about her wisdom, skill, and devotion, they forget to give honesty its pride of place.
As the quilt blocks accumulate, the Elm Creek Quilters celebrate the joy of new beginnings and the ongoing success of their business -- until forces conspire to threaten their happiness and prosperity. Two among them falter in their personal relationships, yet they are too proud to share their pain. The financial problems of another leave the quilt project vulnerable to a malicious act that may prevent its completion. And as two others weigh the comfort of the present against dreams of a future far from Elm Creek Manor, closely guarded secrets strain the bonds of friendship with those who may be left behind.
The Dallas Morning News has praised the Elm Creek Quilts series as "classics of their kind," and The Master Quilter is Chiaverini's latest gift to readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curl up under your quilt! 26 Mar. 2006
Format:Paperback
I discovered this series of books through Amazon and have read all of them. The stories are all interlinked about a group of quilters and their friendships and families. This story is gentle and warming and is just the thing for a cold night by the fire. It is not necessary to read the series to appreciate the storyline. Just snuggle up under a quilt and read - a very comforting combination.

I really enjoyed the book, having not read them in order (!!), this filled in a few gaps for me. The Elm Creek Quilters make Slyvia a Wedding Quilt, i love the way the story is told from different points of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book in the Elm Creek series 12 Oct. 2014
By GM Harlow VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great book in the Elm Creek series. This one looks closely at the lives of prospective Elm Creek quilters one by one. In some cases maybe a little too much, but mostly really unputdownable. (As usual).

I am a big fan of the Elm Creek quilt books. they are an easy and enjoyable read. However, I find this book was repetitive in that a lot of time was spent going over the same ground.
