Description of this Book
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Quilt and the Elm Creek Quilt series, comes a heartwarming account of New Year's traditions at Elm Creek Manor at the close of The Quilter's Legacy, the Elm Creek Quilters were all in attendance on Christmas Eve, where they were overjoyed to witness the wedding of Sylvia Bergstrom Compson to her beloved Andrew Cooper. The New Year's Quilt tells the story of how the newlyweds celebrate their first holiday season as husband and wife. Not content to rest at home by the fire, they set out on a journey to the home of Andrew's daughter, Amy. Unlike the Elm Creek Quilters, Amy has not offered her blessing to the union. Sylvia hopes to win over her new daughter-in-law through the lessons that quilting reveals about the bonds of love and family. As a gift for Amy, Sylvia undertakes a quilt titled New Year's Reflections, whose blocks represent the holiday traditions of Elm Creek Manor. As she stitches the blocks, memories of a lifetime come flooding back, along with words of wisdom meant to celebrate the achievements of generations past and create hope for the future. Just as Christmas and New Year's bookend the joys of the season, The New Year's Quilt is the perfect holiday companion volume to The Christmas Quilt.
