    Has anyone here read the series of books by Jennifer Chiaverini. It is a series of books about the Elm Creek Quilts. I have read every one of her books and love them.

    Her books are well-read in our little town's library. I am trying to collect them for my own Library!

    I just checked two more out of my library this morning! Love them all!! I first stumbled across one of her's right after I got laid off last January. Reading it got me back into quilting, and got me hunting for a quilting message board, which is how I got here! :-)

    I just bought her new one and loved it. I also bought the new workbook. This is the first year I missed her lecture. She uses alot of Pittsburgh towns in her novels, Her Inlaws live in Pgh.

    I too got back into quilting after reading some of her books. I have read them in order and really, really enjoy them. They are such good reading. After getting back into the quilting this winter, I too looked for a message board and found this one. I have been lurking here for a couple of weeks and decided to jump in today. Thanks for the welcome.

    Okay...I might be a minority in the fact I liked the first few and read maybe the first 4. But, by that one, they just got too sappy and unrealistic to me. But, really like the first 2:)Skeat

    Another series that is really good and are based around Quilt Patterns is
    Benni Harper Mystery Series by Erlene Fowler. I love this series, they are quick reads, murder mystery but Erlene's humor in her writing is what make these fun to read.
