The Christmas Memory Quilt

Storybook Quilts
The Christmas Memory Quilt
Kimberly Webb

Synopsis: It's Brynne's birthday, but because it's June, Brynne is confused when her Grandma hands her a package decked in holiday bows. Out spills fabric of green and red - a birthday gift for her, and a Christmas gift for a child in a faraway land. Each day Brynne goes to Grandma's house to learn to quilt, and as they sew, Grandma tells Brynne of Christmases past, including the first, when a baby was born in a lowly stable. But Brynne's parents have a Christmas surprise of their own - the quilt she is making is for her new baby brother - coming from the Romanian orphanage where she sent her quilt!

Discussion Topics: Family, anticipation, generosity, adoption
