Now most of you quilters are probably familiar with all the story's and books she wrote. But for me they are new and after finishing the first, I am curious what will happen in the next 'Elm Creek' quilters! But I only allow myself to read before sleeping or my new bags will not be finished before autumn.
Here a peek of the new bags....

I just love the Elm Creek quilt books and have been reading them since they came out. I love your matroushka quilt. It is just soooo cute and you are doing such a great job! Then of course, you need these matroushka dishes to go with it. I just happened to see these while we spent our week at Cranberry Cottage in a new shop.

Hugs ~

Hi Helen, wow we are at the same point in the Elm Creek Quilts series. I went on the web site and she recommended reading The Christmas Quilt next if you want them to read chronologically.

What wonderful bags. At first glance they looked Latin American because of the colours and woven textures. Very beautiful work. I am very partial to bright colours.

ik ben ook verslaafd aan het lezen van quilt en brei-romans. Vooral de detectives!
