In The Winding Ways Quilt, readers discover how several of the Elm Creek Quilters first met on one momentous day while browsing through Bonnie’s quilt shop, Grandma’s Attic. Judy, nine months pregnant, goes into labor while searching for the perfect border fabric for a crib quilt, which she wanted very much to complete before her baby’s arrival. In the rush to the hospital, Judy leaves the unfinished quilt top behind. Eager to help, Bonnie, Summer, Gwen, Diane, and Agnes decide to finish the quilt— “Welcome, Baby Emily!” —in time for the mother and daughter’s homecoming.
