Round Robin reunites readers with the Elm Creek Quilters in this poignant and heartwarming follow-up to The Quilter's Apprentice, Jennifer Chiaverini's acclaimed debut novel.

"She chose green and blue for the colors of Elm Creek Manor. She chose blue for truth and green for new beginnings . . ."

The Elm Creek Quilters have begun a round robin...a quilt created by sewing concentric patchwork to a central block as it is passed around a circle of friends. Led by Sarah McClure, who came to Waterford, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Matt, a few years ago, the project is to be their gift to their beloved fellow quilter Sylvia Compson. But like the most delicate cross-stitch, their lives are held together by the most tenuous threads of happiness...and they can unravel.

As each woman confronts a personal crisis, a painful truth, or a life-changing choice, the quilt serves as a symbol of the complex and enduring bonds between mothers and daughters, sisters and friends. In weaving together the harmonious, disparate pieces of their crazy-quilt lives, the Elm Creek Quilters come to realize that friendship is one of the most precious gifts we can give each other, and that love can strengthen understanding, lead to new beginnings, and illuminate our lives.

Jennifer Chiaverini lives with her husband and two sons in Madison, Wisconsin. In addition to the six volumes in the Elm Creek Quilts series and two books of quilt patterns inspired by the novels, she designs the Elm Creek Quilts fabric line from Red Rooster Fabrics.

  • A great read, alone or with the series

    Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilts novels are certainly worth reading. The characters are well developed and the stories well crafted. In Round Robin, the reader learns more about the lives of the individual Elm Creek Quilters as well as the friendships and relationships among these women, who represent a range of ages and situations without being stereotypical in any way. I don't usually buy books I don't intend to read more than once, and started getting these from the library. (Round Robin was checked out for a long time and I thought their copy might be lost, so I bought it. I was glad to discover it at the library so I wouldn't feel internal pressure to donate it.) I plan to buy all the EQ books when I can--they are worth reading in sequence (The Quilter's Apprentice is first) or alone or out of order. You don't have to be a quilter to enjoy the stories of the Elm Creek Quilters--but beware, I wasn't a quilter when I began reading the series and now I am! I hope Jennifer Chiaverini keeps writing this series for many years.
