The Giving Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel (Google eBook)
Every stitch makes a difference in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini’s artful, inspiring novel that imagines what good would come from practicing the holiday spirit each and every day of the year.
At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is “Quiltsgiving,” a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt-shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp, to make quilts for Project Linus, a charitable organization dedicated to providing handmade quilts and blankets to children in need. Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, pledges the strength of her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. So it happens that when the Quiltsgiving participants swap fabrics and trade techniques around the quilting circle, the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they piece are infused with love and comfort. So, too, are their personal stories, which collectively consider the strength of human connection and its rich rewards.

The Giving Quilt by Jennifer Chilvalli Quiltsgiving get together annually for a winter session of camp to provide quilts to children in need, Project Linus. Sylvia is the owner of the manor and she has many tasks to complete before the guests arrive for camp. The twins live there along with their mother who helps run the place. Love how the membership will be gathering the fabrics to distribute to those who will be sewing. They will camp in rooms at the manor and meet to not only talk but give each other tips and the room comes with home made meals and food is grown on the estate. Opening day, after a meal, everybody introduces themselves and tells why they are there to quilt and what charity means to them. Other activities are scheduled: historical quilts from the estate are discussed. There are chapters of those attending and how they interact with the others. Loved all the stories and especially the quilting instructions. Hated hearing of the fabric and how it's stolen from a shop that doesn't have a store. I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
