    1. 1. Novel 1: Runaway Quilt: Ok I am in love with this story! It's about the Elm Creek Mannor's history. Sylvia meets another quilter at a conference that approaches her and says she has a quilt that may be connected with Sylvia's family. The disturbing part is that the woman made a comment that some of the fabric could have been from some of the slaves of her relatives. Sylvia refused to believe that the quilt had any connection to her or her family because as she knew her history the mannor was [...]

    2. This book is 3 in 1:_The Runaway Quilt_, a really engaging story in which Sylvia tracks down the history of some Civil War-era quilts that had been passed down through her family. The story flashes between the time when the quilts were being made and the present. I really enjoyed the historical part of the story--interesting and suspenseful. Also, it was really fun getting to see the background of Sylvia's ancestors and meet them as real people, not the myths that were handed down about them. Ve [...]

    3. I think that I enjoyed this trilogy more than the first one. I like the way the author weaves the history of the main character into the story that she is telling. In "The Runaway Quilt" she searches for her great grandmother's quilt which she hopes will prove the story she has heard all her life. This is a story about her ancestral home and its link to the undergound railway. In the second book, she searches for her mother's quilts which were sold off during financially difficult times. The thi [...]

    4. As a fellow quilter, I found this book containing three novels quite a treat. It spanned generations, contained historical information on quilts and their use during the Civil War, and an interesting geneological search related to the quilts. Most of all, the characters were well defined in their intertwined lives, but not without conspiracy, secrets, ambitions and complex relationships. My only disappointment was in the third novel which was divided by characters that replayed previous events w [...]

    5. These books are as cheesy as the first three in the series, but there was more meat to the stories, so I could really sink my teeth into them. I promise I'm not hungry. . . .Anyway, I loved the history of the Underground Railroad in the first book in this album; I loved the history of the Lockwood family in the second book, and I found the third book to be a page-turner. I did not like that the third book left so many loose ends. Clean it up, please; I don't like to use my imagination for story [...]

    6. This was another nice story in the saga of the Elm Creek Quilters. This time the author wrote about a short 1-2 month period of time and gave a chapter to each 'main' character. It was well written and I could definitely follow the story. My only *criticism* is that these stories always end with such a happy endingt that that's a bad thing necessarily but.

    7. This book has three books in one. I just finished "The Runaway Quilt". It shines some light on the Underground Railroad and how it may have worked. I felt for the slaves and the people who tried to save the runaways. It may be fiction, but some of the feelings that comes from the characters seems too real!

    8. Somewhat predictable endingshappy endings. :) But exactly what you expect with these books. Neat turn of writings with the stories from each character's point of viewd the mother/daughter flip flopping chapters.

    9. Three books about a quilters guild and the mishaps, heartaches and joys they go through together. Great book. Really liked it.(clean)

    10. I thoroughly this trilogy of books. My favorite was the first, The Runaway Quilt. I know nothing about quilting but family histories told through the quilts was fascinating.
