The Aloha Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini

The weather forecast has been reminding us that this lovely weather will soon come to an end.

Dorothy in our Morden Branch recommends a new book from Jennifer Chiaverini’s Elm Creek Quilt Series. The Aloha Quilt is set in Hawaii, and follows the story of one of the quilters, Bonnie.

Bonnie finds herself at a crossroads in her life. She has an unexpected opportunity to go to Hawaii to help a friend set up an exciting new business: a quilter’s retreat at a bed and breakfast amid the vibrant colours and balmy breezes of the Hawaiian Islands. This certainly is not an opportunity to let pass by. Soon Bonnie finds herself immersed in the history and intricacies of making Hawaiian quilts.

This is the 16th book in the Elm Creek Quilt series. Each book offers a personal story of one of the quilters, fascinating folk history, the story of a particular quilt pattern, and a lot of inspiration to create a quilt of your own.
