    I read them and enjoyed them. However, my taste runs more toward historical autobiographies. ( Easy reads though)

    Are they mysteries? Is each in the series connected? What time period to they take place in?

    I've read most of them and have really enjoyed them. For those who haven't read them, I suggest reading them in order because it is a continuing series. The books are set in present time, but a couple fit in the series as historical novels. Enjoy!

    They are a series, set mostly in current time, although sometimes there are flashbacks...
    You can read them in any order, but thats just me...
    Jennifer is coming out with another, I think in March...I LOVE reading them, although they are rather easy reads...not too much romance...

    I love the series. I'm just finishing The Aloha Quilt for the second time. I have read through the series twice now. It was easy reading especially when I was taking my mom to Dr. and physical therapy appointments. A little romance, a little history, a little quilt reference. Nothing complicated or mind boggling.
    I really should try a block or two from the pattern books that I have!!! Oh well...more dreaming.

    Yes, I have read the whole series in order and I love it. In fact these books are the reason why I joined the International Round Robin here because it sounded like such a neat idea in the books when they did the round robins. I have also bought the Elm Creek books with the directions and patterns in them and am making my own Elm Creek sampler like Sylvia's but I don't think I will make that many blocks for mine. I am doing them in a 9 inch block instead of the 6" block. I love traditonal blocks.

    Thanks,

    Will your library let you put a hold on it?

    I think it is a great series, and am currently reading the last in the series. Then will be anxiously awaiting the release of the new one.

    Not my usual read...I prefer non-fiction, but do read more than my fair share of fantasy and crime.

    I have read one, but feel it's better to read them in series, I have got one second hand, so will look for more and when I have the lot, then will start at the beginning. I think I like them purely from the "quilting" point of view, rather than anything else....strange, probably, but that's the plan!

    Don't say anything more! I am only on book 2 and did not know she was pregnant!I belong to Paperback book swap so I wait till they are available thur there.If you want to save money for more fabric,LQL, you should check out paper back,esp. if you read alot.

    I got the first one at the library. Loved it so much that I've purchased all of them and have recommended them to others. They do make more sense if you read them in order as the plot lines tend to continue through quite a few of the books.
