Children are introduced to the art of making quilts, specifically in the setting of a quilting bee. The author includes sample blocks from several types of quilts to discuss the different meanings and reasons quilts were created in the past, but explaining that they were now quite popular motifs. The illustrations are okay but not the greatest.

My boys are my non-fiction lovers, and we have spent many hours reading Gail Gibbons nonfiction together. They are full of facts, but very easy for kids to understand. This is one of their favorites.
