Making a Quilt

Quilts do more than just provide warmth. Some tell stories of long journeys or serve as an outlet for artistic expression, while others are given as gifts.

In the story, Making a Quilt, the main character learns how to make a quilt from her grandma. After carefully following her grandma’s instructions, she creates her own beautiful quilt.
