In the Roaring Twenties, newlywed Elizabeth Bergstrom Nelson, the heroine of Jennifer Chiaverini’s tenth novel, The Quilter’s Homecoming (Simon & Schuster, April 2007), departs Elm Creek Manor with her husband for sunny Southern California, happily anticipating a future bright with love and prosperity. The unexpected turns her life takes inspired the floral, art deco, and wave designs in the fabric line, “Elm Creek Quilts: Elizabeth’s Collection.” Elizabeth and Henry find work on Triumph Ranch in the Arboles Valley, where they help with the apricot harvest, echoed in several apricot floral prints. An art deco fan and a geometric print representing Frank Lloyd Wright glass note popular design tends of the era, while a wave design represents the Pacific Ocean and a meandering barley pattern notes another feature of the new landscape Elizabeth calls home.
