Mary looks at her fingers, and can still see that God has something useful waiting for them. She knows that there is still something life wants her to do. She then starts to make the QUILT together with all the people coming to see her. But this is not an ordinary quilt. Every singel stich is made with a prayer. And as the stiching goes on, the life of the people we meet starts to change.
This is a moving book, written in a beautiful way. The book teach us something important of life. In a time when we are all so busy, we never have time to sit down together, not to mention sit down in silence and in prayer. No one who gets involved with Mary's quilting project will be the same again. No one who gets involved in this book will be the same again. Weather you are a quilter or not, we all can do something with life, for ourselves and for others.

Quilts and quilting seem to bring friends and family together. I was especially impressed by how Mary used the power of prayer in the stitching of her quilt. Most of us women and some men, have a difficult time in sitting quietly and reflecting on others. We are so much into a fast-paced world that we fail to really get to know others and even less to care about them.
When Mary dies, her family and friends understand how much she has affected all their lives and gives them a new meaning of life. Even the other members of the town who do not come to quilt have to admit that there was something special going on at Mary's home that was very moving.
I would recommend this book to anyone, quilter or not. I have also read Bunn's other books: The Gift, The Messenger and would also recommend them as well.
Mary has a dream to create a patchwork quilt from cherished scraps (a diary of the fabrics in her life). Her goal catches the imagination of her daughters-in-law, as well as other kind ladies in her town. Precious memories are shared as comunal stitching brings these women together in a way they did not realize possible. Soon it becomes imperative to complete the Quilt before Mary--with her arthritic hands--is called Home. She loved both her sons to the end, but only one understood her great need to preserve the sacred family memories. This book will touch your heart and possibly inspire you to start saving the special fabric scraps of your own life. Most importantly, to cherish your family and leave them a memorable, tangible gift of your love.
