Description

Series: The Elm Creek Quilts (Book 16). Paperback: 352 pages. I'm a big fan of Jennifer Chiaverini and her Elm Creek Quilts series

Series: The Elm Creek Quilts (Book 16). I'm a big fan of Jennifer Chiaverini and her Elm Creek Quilts series. I've been known to quilt here and there (but certainly not as much as I would like to) and the thing I like about it most is the community feel of the activity; it tends to be more fun to work on a quilt with other people especially if you are making a quilt by hand. Jennifer does an excellent job of showcasing the quilt craft as an art form as well as the women in her stories who create them.

I must admit that I wasn't particularly looking forward to reading the Aloha Quilt as I felt it was going to be quite a departure from the previous books' setting. And it was although the author wove the story "threads" into a very interesting storeline and taught this reader even more about the wonderful Hawaiian islands. I had the opportunity too live on Oahu for 10 years and visited the other islands often. While reading the book, I often times found myself remembering sites, sounds, aromas, and many experiences. I especially appreciated learning more about the Hawaiian people and their history. I must admit that I am not a quilter. I do, however, admire those who are and marvel at their special creations. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series -- especially the Aloha Quilter. ALOHA!

I'm a big fan of Jennifer Chiaverini and her Elm Creek Quilts series. I've been known to quilt here and there (but certainly not as much as I would like to) and the thing I like about it most is the community feel of the activity; it tends to be more fun to work on a quilt with other people especially if you are making a quilt by hand.

Jennifer does an excellent job of showcasing the quilt craft as an art form as well as the women in her stories who create them. The thing I like about Jennifer's books is that you never know which direction she's going to take her next story. She likes to jump back and forth between eras (such as present day and the Civil War period) and she also changes which character she focuses on each time.

I've read all of the Elm Creek Series so far, so when I saw that she had a new book called The Aloha Quilt, I pre-ordered it. I was thrilled that it showed up just before I left for vacation to Ireland. I look forward to the main character's struggle and how they address it. I love how the women join together to help the main character and I appreciate the insights as they find the solution.

This particular book revolves around Bonnie who is going through a nasty divorce and needs some relief. She heads to Hawaii to help a friend set up a quilt camp very similar to Elm Creek Quilts and tries to sort out her life and what she wants. Throw in a crazy soon-to-be-ex-husband and you've got a pretty good, easy read.

Jennifer is a talented writer and I recommend this series if you like "chick books" or anything that revolves around crafting in general. Be sure to start with The Elm Creek Quilts Sampler which is the first three books in the series and you'll be on your way.

This is a little "slice of life" book. The personal story of the main character was average for this genre of book. However, the impact of the description of Hawaiian culture and the treatment of the Hawaiians by the U.S. Govt, as well as the relationship with mainlanders today was significant. Because of that, I LOVED this book. The day I finished it, a repeat Antiques Roadshow episode showed a Hawaiian quilt owned by a Mormon family. I was able to recognize many differences in the styling of the quilt, the hidden political message in the quilt, as well as the significance of the magnificent and valuable quilt being owned by a mainland Mormon. Wow! I will never think of Hawaiian culture in the same way again. Thank you to the author for writing such a heartbreaking piece of history in a way that does not create divisiveness, but opens our eyes to how we have treated indigenous people.

I have lived in Hawaii for 46 years. I really appreciated the author's sensitive handling of the Hawaiian culture. She presnted a very realistic insight into Hawaii today.
How lovely wouldi it be to have a real quilting camp.

In this continuation of the Elm Creek Quilt series (#16), Bonnie is the focus of the story. She is in the middle of a contentious divorce, her quilt shop is closed, and she is trying to figure out where to go with her life. When an old friend invites her to Hawaii to act as a consultant for setting up a quilt camp at a bed and breakfast, she decides to take the plunge. Bonnie has to deal with Claire's conviction that she is in Hawaii to stay, but enjoys learning about both the Hawaiian traditions regarding quilting through Midori, the cook and head housekeeper at the inn, and about Hawaiian history through Midori's nephew, Hinano. Things take a turn for the worse when her husband, Craig, threatens Elm Creek Quilts through her part ownership, and Bonnie begins to wonder if there is anything worth returning to on the mainland. While the flow of the storyline was fairly predictable, I enjoyed learning more about the quilting traditions that arose in Hawaii. It was a quick and straightforward book to read.
