Excellent story. Too bad more families don't follow traditions of quilt making to hand down to the next generation. Really like this Author's books . Haven't had a bad one yet .

This was a very touching story! I love reading and watching the generations continue the tradition of passing on the quilt and how the marriage custom evolved keeping some of the same traditions but adding others to it. It was so beautiful! Now I want to make a keeping quilt! :)
