Otto, Whitney "How to make an American Quilt"


Otto, Whitney "How to Make an American Quilt"  - 1991

This is one of the few books I read after watching the movie. Can you tell that I loved the movie? It is full of wonderful women, one character cast better than the next. They all have a story to tell, and they tell their story to Finn who is the granddaughter of one of the quilt ladies and is about to get married. I expected the book to be just as good.

And it was. Whether this is due to the fact that I had the most vivid images in front of me already and have to thank the director of the movie more than the author of the book, I will never know. I just know that I will love this story forever.

From the back cover:

"An extraordinay and moving reading experience, HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT is an exploration of women of yesterday and today, who join together in a uniquely female experience. As they gather year after year, their stories, their wisdom, their lives, form the pattern from which all of us draw warmth and comfort for ourselves."
