The Quilt is the wonderful story of an old woman, Mary. She is a mother and a grandmother, and has a long and meaningful life to look back on. Now she feels all the signs of age, and her hands and fingers that used to do all kinds of useful crafts are now arthritic. Still they have their own, very special beauty, like Mary has in herself. People can see the beauty in this old woman, and not only family, but people of all ages comes to see her. And Mary has the skill to see the beauty in them all.
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.

Several years ago, I found T. Davis Bunn's book, The Quilt at my local Christian Book store. Since I sew quilts for friends and for craft shows to sell, I made the purchase. It was one of those hard-to-put-down books.
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.

One does not have to be a quilter to appreciate the warmth and gentle peace which emanate from this gem of a little book. Aged and infirm, Mary is admired by most people in her community, for she has a special way of making each one feel at home and of value; she gently helps them find solutions to their problems and solace for their cares--a rare gift in itself. Because she leads others to calm introspection, she is considered by all a truly beautiful woman. Her two sons are so different, but one of them underdstands her need to complete something beautiful--to create with more than mere fingers.
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.

The story itself is a likeable one, but you can guess the ending all the way. The author tells us things, rather than showing us, and the characters tend to be stock characters rather than unexpected, unique individuals. But the greatest flaw, in my opinion as a quilter, is the descriptions of the quilting process. The author didn't bother to take the time to actually observe how a quilt is made (a common enough hubris when men are describing 'women's work'). I suspect he relied on some childhood memories, as he talked about Mary making the batts, something that was common enough in the Depression, but I've never seen anyone do except as a historical re-enactment, as manufactured batting is so vastly superior. He says that they put the backing into the frame before they've finished piecing the top, which flies in the face of the term that quilters use now to describe the process: creating the sandwich. A quilt in a frame is a cumbersome item, and no one would put it up until they are ready to start quilting. Nor would anyone put a finished quilt back into the frame to display it; it's much easier to hang a completed quilt using a fabric sleeve. If you're going to write a book about making something, learning the details of how that object is made isn't an unnecessary waste of time, not if you respect your audience. Even though the book is 'about' the spiritual effects of the process, describing the process correctly isn't superfluous.
