Anne of Green Gables isn't the only thing that puts Prince Edward Island on the map. It's also famous for its quilts; in fact, L.M. Montgomery herself was a quilter.

We know this because we recently leafed through The 100 Best Worldwide Vacations to Enrich Your Life, by Pam Grout (National Geographic, $19.95). The book's fifth suggestion for expanding one's horizons is to take a quilting trip on the island.

If you're interested in visiting Prince Edward Island because of its connection to Anne of Green Gables and quilting, you can learn more about Canada's smallest province at www.gov.pe.ca/visitorsguide. In fact, there's even a page just for visitors drawn to the island because of the centennial of L.M. Montgomery's book: www.Anne2008.com. If you're interested in taking a quilting trip on the island, you may want to start by exploring www.ESLHomestay.ca/English/engmain.htm, the Web site of the organization that organizes eight-day quilting trips on the island.
