Two short stories by the New York Times best-selling author of the Elm Creek Quilts series, Jennifer Chiaverini. In "The Fabric Diary," the new owner of a Manhattan bed-and-breakfast discovers a mysterious scrapbook of fabric swatches, compelling her to discover the connection between a beautiful antique quilt and the original owners of her historic brownstone. "The Runner's Quilt" tells the heartwarming story of a young mother who discovers fitness and fulfillment by becoming a runner--and by making a special quilt for a new friend. Originally published in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and Quiltmaker, these two charming short stories appear together for the first time in one eBook edition.
