The Keeping Quilt

Written and Illustrated by Patricia Polacco

As a way to remember their home in Russia, Anna’s family sews a quilt from old clothes from their family. Remnants from Aunt Havdalah’s nightgown and Aunt Natasha’s apron become part of a quilt that is used in many ways, including as a Sabbath tablecloth and wedding canopy. The quilt symbolizes the family connections that endure through the generations.
