    I have every audio book. Be sure to start with the beginning. It all follows the lives of the quilters at Elm Creek. There also is a cookbook that goes with the books! The coffee cake is especially good!

    I hope this will help anyone who thinks halfway like me:

    1. The Quilter's Apprentice - 1999
    2. Round Robin - 2000
    3. Cross Country Quilters - 2001
    4. The Runaway Quilt - 2002
    5. The Quilter's Legacy - 2003
    6. The Master Quilter - 2004
    7. The Sugar CAmp Quilt - 2005
    8. The Christmas Quilt - 2005
    9. The Circle of Quilters - 2006
    10. The Quilter's Homecoming - 2007
    11. The New Years Quilt - 2007
    12. Winding Ways Quilt - 2008
    13. The Lost Quilter - 2009
    14. A Quilter's Holiday - 1009
    15. The Aloha Quilt - 2010

    Nos. 4-14 come together. Won't say a word about it. But, for what it is worth, I read the books in order and it kept the whole family together to totally understand it.

    I believe No. 6 has the quilting book for the Wedding Quilt book. I would love to make that quilt.

    Enjoy. Edie

    I belonged to a writers group and I actually won a prize in a contest with a book review on the Elm Creek Quilters trilogy.

    Yes, your library should have them and they are a fun and easy read but definitely read them in order, then you'll know who everybody is and why they're doing what they're doing.

    Just finished listening to The Aloha Quilt. I have gotten them from my library through their inter-library loan program. "Reading" them in order is very important to keep the characters growing with the story.

    I've listened to several of them, available online from Audible.com. Kinda pricey if you don't have a membership (I used to have a membership because audio books saved my sanity with 2 hours of commuting every day). Can't remember the person who reads the books, but she's very good. Hearing the voices makes me feel more like I know the characters.

    Hi...Did you mean Abe's Books? If so, at the top of their website they have lots of bookstores in their system that have FREE shipping anywhere in the continental USA, however, on some books, seems like their price is the same or more than the ones that charge for shipping.

    The Runaway Quilt is the book to read before The Lost Quilter. It refers to the same person, Joanna! Wonderful stories. Edie

    i get them fromthe library and get them on cd's so i can listen while I work on my longarm or am sewing, it's easy to listen and not as distracting as tv.

    That is how I listen to all my books! Car or sewing - sometimes just sitting outside relaxing! Edie

    Christina Moore narrates the books. And she is good. Edie

    I went to Half-Price books and they only had one. That was the east side Half-Price Books. Don't know about the west side. I've gotten mine from Amazon.com and ebay, with gas prices what they are I think it just as cheap to pay shipping as it is to drive a long distance.

    I love them!!! I buy them from Amazon.com--find that they are cheaper than Barnes & Noble and can get free shipping. I own everyone she had written so far---I do not buy very many hardback books except an occasional quilting book, but after I read the first one, I was hooked. They are one of only 2 sets of hardbacks I own,the other is Harry Potter series. Definitely must reads.
