Publisher's Summary

Linda Davis’s local fabric shop is a place where women gather to share their creations: quilts commemorating important events in their lives. Wedding quilts, baby quilts, memorial quilts - each is bound tight with dreams, hopes, and yearnings.

Now, as her only child readies for college, Linda is torn between excitement for Molly and heartache for herself. Who will she be when she is no longer needed in her role as mom? What will become of her days? Of her marriage?

Mother and daughter decide to share one last adventure together - a cross-country road trip to move Molly into her dorm. As they wend their way through the heart of the country, Linda stitches together the scraps that make up Molly’s young life. And in the quilting of each bit of fabric - the hem of a christening gown, a snippet from a Halloween costume - Linda discovers that the memories of a shared journey can come together in a way that will keep them both warm in the years to come....

    "Couldn't bear it past the second chapter"

    Full disclosure-I was looking for something kind of sad, not too deep. Yikes! This was sad in the writing. Sorry Susan but write what you know and I don't think you do. The daughter is on her way to college and is looking at class choices? Really? A quilt shop still cutting fabric with scissors? Hand quilting an entire bed quilt in the car? Not having a child find out she had a still born sibling before she was 18?
    Clearly I could really NOT relate to this book. I found it to be too gooey sweet. If had been written from the teenager's point of view it's lack of depth might have made more sense. It felt very Leave it Beaver era television writing.

    "Rang so true!!!"

    This book reminded me so closely of my own experience taking my daughter to college. Very genuine and honest - I found myself getting teary eyed at the similarities.
