More About The Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco
 
 
 
Overview
This 25th anniversary edition of a beloved and bestselling classic about family and tradition includes fifteen pages of bonus material.
"We will make a quilt to help us always remember home," Anna's mother said. "It will be like having the family in backhome Russia dance around us at night."
And so it was. From a basket of old clothes, Anna's babushka, Uncle Vladimir's shirt, Aunt Havalah's nightdress, and an apron of Aunt Natasha's become The Keeping Quilt, passed along from mother to daughter for almost a century. For four generations the quilt is a Sabbath tablecloth, a wedding canopy, and a blanket that welcomes babies warmly into the world.
In strongly moving pictures that are as heartwarming as they are real, Patricia Polacco tells the story of her own family and the quilt's further story that remains a symbol of their enduring love and faith. This anniversary edition includes fifteen pages of original material describing the quilt's journey and its home at the Mazza Museum in Findley, Ohio.
