You have to click on the black box to see it!

This is where we stand for books at the moment. I would think that 2 copies of each book would be great because the group is growing. I know there is one member that has a couple of them but has forgotten to let me know which ones they are. No worries because I can update this when she lets me know.

I will be purchasing 2 or 3 a month used if I can get them used so that we have plenty to go around and keep this group moving forward.

If anyone has a copy of any of these books on the list great. If you come across a used one I would be grateful for that as well. Just please let me know what the title is so I can tell you who to send it to when you are done reading it.

I am waiting for the first 2 that I did buy to arrive. The good news is Cyndiofthevortex has already started reading the first one.

I will update this list as there are changes to it. Thank you all for being so cooperative and patient. I was shocked at how long it took me to put these titles in order. I guess I am rusty on the computer. Now that it is done I am happy!

Ann is right. If you click on it there will be/should be a bar at the bottom of your screen that allows you the option of opening the file. The file is our group library. It lists the books we currently have and need. Just an FYI for the group.

The copy of “The Christmas Quilt that I ordered has “The New Year’s Quilt” in the same book. So “The New Years Quilt will be out of order. It is supposed to be after “The Quilters Legacy”.
“The Giving Quilt” takes place when Sarah McClure’s twins are four and a half years old. I don’t know which book that happens in so I will update the order numbers when I find out. For now it will remain the last book.
There is another book in this series coming out this October 2013 as well as a companion guide to the entire series. We have a ways to go so I will worry about that then.

We have had another donation to our group from Renate so here is another library update. You should be able to click on the black box and then open it up from a bar that will appear at the bottom of your screen. If not here it is although it is hard to read.

I am sorry but if you read further on her site it tells you where the other book fall in the order. I double and triple checked this. As for the one coming out on October first I will double check that but she definitely has a companion book to the series coming out for this series. My list of the order is correct.

Dolores, I think that the list you have is the order in which they came out and normally that would be the order in which you should read them.
But the list Lisa has is the recommended order to read them by the author herself.....

Lisapc
September 14th, 2013, 11:41 PM
This is the Author herself letting us know what order to read the books in if you want to read them in cronilogical order which is what our group wants to do and how I created the library list.

Should I read the Elm Creek Quilts novels in the order you wrote them? If I read the Elm Creek Quilts novels out of order, will I still be able to understand them?

If you want to read the books in the order I wrote them, read them in the order listed above. However, since I wasn't planning to write a series, I have written each book so that it stands alone. On my book tour, I often hear longtime fans tell new readers that the books should be read in the order I wrote them, but other readers have told me that they have read the books out of order and were able to follow everything just fine. Ultimately it's up to the individual reader. Please note, however, that later books inevitably give away events that occurred in previous books. If you would like to read the books in something approximating chronological order, please note the following:

The Christmas Quilt takes place in the interim between The Quilter's Apprentice and Round Robin.
The Sugar Camp Quilt is set in 1849-1850, so it takes place before the events chronicled in Gerda's memoir in The Runaway Quilt.
The Quilter's Homecoming is set mainly in 1925, but it branches off from a storyline introduced in The Christmas Quilt.
The New Year's Quilt immediately follows The Quilter's Legacy.
The Lost Quilter begins in 1859 immediately following the events chronicled in Gerda's memoir in The Runaway Quilt.
A Quilter's Holiday takes place while Bonnie is in Hawaii in The Aloha Quilt.
The Union Quilters begins in 1861 and runs mostly concurrently with The Lost Quilter.
The Wedding Quilt takes place after A Quilter's Holiday and The Aloha Quilt, with flash forwards to the year 2028.
Sonoma Rose is set in the Prohibition era immediately following the events of The Quilter's Homecoming.
The Giving Quilt takes place when Sarah McClure's twins are four and a half years old.

I was mistaken, the next book to come out was due out in August which is an Elm Creek pattern book and not to be a part of our group library without it being a big donation.

From Author:

In the fall, Plume will publish a reader's guide to the Elm Creek Quilts series titled An Elm Creek Quilts Companion, and plans are to have another new novel out at that time too.

I hope that clears up any confusion as to why our list is different that the published when list.
