The Keeping Quilt BSW1188

US$17.95

"We will make a quilt to help us always remember home," Anna's mother said. "It will be like heaving the family in backhome Russia dance around us at night. 
And so it was. From a basket of old clothes, Anna's babushka, Uncle Vladimir's shirt, Aunt Havalah's nightdress and an apron of Aunt Natasha's become The Keeping Quilt, passed along from mother to daughter for almost a century. For four generations the quilt is a Sabbath tablecloth, a wedding canopy, and a blanket that welcomes babies warmly into the world. 

这是一个借由传家被道出的关于爱和传承的故事。传家被不是一床普通的被子,它是由一箩筐的旧衣服拼成的,里面有妈妈的头巾、爸爸的衬衫、阿姨穿过的睡衣和围裙……将这些有深刻记忆的旧物精心缝制成一床被子,从母亲的手里传递给女儿,再传给女儿的孩子,这样大家就能永远记得家乡。这张被子迎接过新生儿的到来,见证了每一对新人的结合,也目送了每一位亲人的离开;它当过我儿时幻想中的披风和帐篷,偶尔也用作餐桌的桌布……

一床被子传递着家庭的温暖和幸福,承载着家人的爱和信仰。家,是我们感受爱和学会爱的起点。一针一线、一言一行都能成为爱的载体,记录幸福并传递温暖。
