Quilts can tell lovely stories. In her much anticipated first book, For Keeps: Meaningful Patchwork for Every Day Living, Amy Gibson teaches you how to make quilts today that will become family heirlooms _ not because of their meticulous construction, but because of the stories they tell and the stories they will inspire.

17 fabulous projects are divided into two sections: Memory Makers and Memory Keepers. The quilts are showcased throughout the book in over 100 inspiring and beautiful photographs
