On every such Friday the Elm Creek Quilters gather to prepare for the festive times ahead, and to plan hand-made gifts for loved ones. Eager to continue the traditions they have created together, they commence the season by feasting on a potluck lunch made from the leftovers of Chef Anna's delicious roast-turkey dinner with all the trimmings. In The Quilters' Holiday, Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstrom Compson is thankful for the opportunity to revive a family tradition. A recent remodelling of the kitchen at Elm Creek Manor unearthed a cornucopia made by Sylvia's sister, Claudia. Restored to its former place as the centrepiece of the holiday table, Sylvia explains that the Bergstroms chose this decorative receptacle to harbour their thankfulness and gratitude. Just as Sylvia's aunts, grandparents, and cousins contributed a symbolic object to the cornucopia, Sylvia invites the Elm Creek Quilters to make a quilt block, representative of their holiday hopes and wishes.Read Less

This book brought back memories of the quilting class that I took in 2000. Because of the close friendships of the women in the book and the descriptions of the quilts, I have decided to take up quilting again. I truly enjoyed The Quilters' Holiday and I am reading other books in the series
