As her daughters wedding day approaches, Sarah McClure reflects upon Elm Creek brides past and presentthe traditions they honored, the legacies they bequeathed, the wedding quilts that contain their stories in every stitch.
Unexpectedly, Caroline confides, "I wish I had a wedding quilt, one I made myself." Sarah yearns to grant her fervent wish, but even the most talented novice would be daunted by the task of stitching, mere days before the wedding, a worthy symbol of the couple's bonds of love, commitment, trust, and hope for the future. Turning to her cherished friends, the Elm Creek Quilters, Sarah asks them to pool their creative gifts. As the women stitch, their memories render a vivid pastiche of family, friendship, and love in all its varieties.
