MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE ONE QUILT AT A TIME By Ruth McHaney Danner Review

Quilts exemplify precious things: comfort through the warmth they provide; community, since they are often created by groups; and love, given the time and effort they require. The quilters profiled here know this and have turned something they love doing into a way of showing love.

 Each chapter introduces a quilter or group of quilters. They include elderly women in Michigan who create bedcovers for a homeless shelter, an Indiana group that makes quilts for every member of every Habitat for Humanity house built in their county, and a Massachusetts woman who organized the sewing of quilts for everyone injured in the Boston Marathon bombing. 

From a blind woman in Texas to preschoolers in Australia, these people are making their compassion tangible one stitch, square, and quilt at a time. 

Their wonderfully inspiring stories show that everyone who has ever wondered, “But what can I do?” can do something that will help someone.

Cassandra's Review- The unity of strength and precious people who have donated time and quilts to the less fortunate is both heartwarming and sweet.  This author has added a charm to her book that makes it wonderful for older ages.
