I love quilts. What's not to love about something so warm & cozy, and beautiful, too? Just looking at the cover & reading the title told me that here was a book by a kindred spirit. Sue Bender succeeds in writing simply about her longing for, and her journey toward community; that sense of belonging we all crave. What better metaphor for community than the quilt; an assembly of small individual pieces of fabric into one, large, utilitarian whole?

I loved this book. I was at a point in my life where this book really spoke to me. It was about how we can look at others and yet understand ourselves better. I highly recommend it is a quick read. I was able to read in just a couple of days.
