What Kind of Book is The Boy and the Quilt

Quotes from This Book

  • “The boy’s sister was going to make a quilt, and so was his mother. And so, she said, could he.”
  • “Other people, the mother said, wore thimbles when they quilted, but not her. She said sewing with a thimble was like walking around with a bucket over your head.”
  • “And before long, his quilt was finished. It had stopped growing; it would never be hungry and it would never need to be mowed. It would always be his, and on cold nights he would be warm.”
