Every stitch makes a difference in New York Timesbestselling 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 quiltshop 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. Praise for The Giving Quilt’Chiaverini delivers another satisfying Elm Creek Quilts story in the latest title in this excellent series.’ Booklist’Chiaverini’s themes of love, loss, and healing will resonate with many, and her characters’ stories are inspiring.’ Publishers Weekly
