From her nursing home, a grandmother teaches her two granddaughters how to quilt under the compassionate and watchful eye of their narrating mother. Jennifer has just graduated from college with a business degree and intends to be a millionaire by the age of thirty. Her younger, shyer sister, Susan, is studying to be a teacher. When Susan asks, "Grama, could you teach me to make a quilt?" she starts these four women on a journey - a passing of values and wisdom from one generation to the next. For Jennifer and Susan, Grama's simple lessons in the art of quilting becomes a profound metaphor for stitching together the fabric of their lives. As these young women learn twelve crucial lessons in quilt making, they discover how to create their own destiny by combining quality work, perseverance, and the right amount of vibrant color.
