    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's such a fun read and enjoyable to listen to while I'm driving or working around the house....even while I'm at my sewing machine doing a bit of quilting myself. Having young children, it's also gentle on the ears with no swearing or inappropriate content that I wouldn't want them listening to.


    What other book might you compare The Quilter's Apprentice to and why?

    I can't think of any


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book is great, but I really did like when Sylvia and her sister in law saw each other for the first time after all those years and how Sara kept it a secret to get them together and talk...and to look out for her friends the way she did.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and smile many times. What a fun and inspirational book about friends and family....and quilting.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book and highly recommend if you want an easy listening good story without worrying about inappropriate things being said around children. It's a good lesson on family and forgiving as well.

    In this intriguing novel, master quilter Sylvia Compson comes across an heirloom quilt that muddles her heritage. She's always believed her ancestors were active in the Underground Railroad - but perhaps she's been mistaken.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's full of history and intriuge. The more the story went on, the more I wanted to learn.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Runaway Quilt?

    When they found the journal detailing a family secret.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she's wonderful.


    If you could rename Runaway Quilt, what would you call it?

    I think it's the perfect name for this chapter of the Elm Creek Quilters adventures.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been listening to all of the Elm Creek Quilters books in order from the 1st to now this one and with each book I'm learning more and more about Sylvia and her family history as well as quilt history....I can't stop listening to these wonderful books. Even if I only have a 10 minute drive to the store, I'm linking up my iPhone with my bluetooth stereo so I can listen in the car! I'm hooked on this series of books, they are just a joy to listen to.
