    I would have to say mine is Anna, the chef. I identify with her on so many levels. I'm glad that she was written as a normal person and someone who is capable of having a romance. It's nice to see plus-sized characters portrayed realistically instead of like the stereotypical "fat girl."

    Who is your favorite?

    I love all the Elm Creek characters and identify a little with each one. The only book I haven't read is The Quilter's Kitchen so I don't know much about Anna yet but I ordered it last week. My favorite Elm Creek book so far was The Lost Quilter.

    The Quilter's Kitchen is really good, although it doesn't talk too much about Anna. It's more about Sylvia and her family.

    I love them all. I haven' gotten any for a while. Does any one have a list that list them in the order they should read? If you could share, I would appreciate it.

    I love these books and read them in whatever order I pick them up off the shelf that day! I also like so many of the characters. I love Agnes, she appears so sweet but there is an iron core to her! I love how as Jennifer has written more books, we've gotten to see more characters develop. I was happy to learn more about Bonnie in the Aloha Quilt.

    The Aloha Quilt made me want to make a Hawaiian style quilt. Actually, after reading that book DH and I went out for Hawaiian food that night. lol

    I've just started the series too. My little librarian said she would order them as I got to them...I've read the 1st 3 now...so having to wait for her order to come in. I like how Jennifer develops the characters though and I can't wait to meet more of them!
