    I love to read the Elm Creek novels and was wondering if anyone knew of other fiction related to quilting. Thanks.

    There is another series. My girlfriend is reading them. I can't remember the name. If you go to Amazon and look up quilting novels, it will probably pop up. Try the library when you find them.

    Here are 3 good ones by Marie Bostwick: A Thread of Truth, A Single Thread and A Thread So Thin. Also do a search for novels by Emilie Richards. She has several also.

    I haven't looked for any other quilting novels but am just getting close to finishing "The Winding Ways Quilt". I also have "The Master Quilter" which will be the next one that I read. I will definitely be on the watch for more books of that sort as well. If you go to Red Rooster Fabrics.com, they have some of the Elm Creek Quilts patterns - kind of fun to look at..... Have you read all of Jennifer Chiaverini's books?

    I read the first couple (maybe 4) but our library doesn't carry the newer ones and I am too frugal to buy books. I find that reading the quilting novels motivates me to quilt.

    Emilie Richards has a great group, takes place in Virginia. The first one is the Wedding Ring. Each one has a slight connection to the last one. There are 5 I believe.
