This book is all about a special quilt that is passed down from one generation to another. In the beginning of this book, Patricia’s grandmother had a quilt for her. Then she used it for her wedding. It is also used for wrapping a baby like Patricia’s daughter.

I loved the book because I like how the quilt was passed down to Patricia’s grandmother and then to Patricia’s mother. I also like how the quilt was made from scraps of clothing and other special materials.

I recommend this book to everyone because it is amazing. It is really amazing that the special quilt lasted so long and is really a special part of Patricia’s family
