Katy and her mother spend a winter missing Gram, who died last summer. Katy finds a pile of quilt squares in Gram's sewing basket labeled "Kate's Quilt". The two decide to make the quilt during the winter. Each of Gram's quilts had a special meaning. Katy tries to discover out the special meaning to the triangles for her quilt. Enjoy this book's beautiful vision of winter and remembrance, memory and love.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003-2004)
