I first bought this book for my teenage Granddaughter who likes to sew. I had heard it had the quilt pattern in it. I glanced inside to make sure, and I was hooked. I immediately sat down and read it cover to cover. This book isn't just for teenagers. It definitely spans the generations. I immediately ordered it for my 75-year old mother, who quilts, for Mother's Day. I know she will absolutely love it. My mother and grandmother taught me to knit and crochet, but never taught me quilting because I frankly was just never interested. Here I am, 55 years old, read a book supposedly for teenagers - and this is the first time I have ever had any interest in knowing how to quilt.
Beautifully written; beautifully illustrated, and I am dying to make this quilt. I will definitely buy more of the books for gift as well. And not just for teenagers!

An excellent story for anyone, young or old, and especially for quilt makers.

Wonderful book hitting a target group seldom tapped by quilts books or novels.

It is about an 11 year old girl learning her family history while also learning to quilt. She decides to make family heirloom butterfly blocks into a quilt. The 92 page book includes the pattern and instructions. There is a watercolor picture at the start of each chapter, making this a wonderful gift book too.

This is a beautifully told, gentle story that captures the wonder and sense of kinship a young person can experience through the discovery of an ancestor who is brought back to life through memory and the gift of something left behind. In this book the gift takes the form of the pieces of a quilt started by one young Alice many years before the birth of another Alice--her great-niece. The second Alice decides to finish the quilt and learn of the life of her great-aunt who died at the age of twelve. The work on the quilt and what she decides to do with it when it's completed would warm anyone's heart, but the fact that the tale comes from actual events in the author's life makes it even more poignant. And an added gift to the reader: the instructions for making the beautiful butterfly quilt that connects the two Alices.
I've greatly enjoyed Jennifer Blomgren's other children's books, but I think this is my favorite. It's the first that includes her own lovely watercolor illustrations and can be treasured by absolutely any age group.

I happily read the book straight through. This tale gently connects a young teen to her people in the not too distant past. A delightful yarn that left me in a dream-like state reminiscing of my own grandmother sharing the stories of her childhood. Ah, if only the old quilts could talk. The author has pulled together many scraps of stories to give a voice to one Oregon quilt and inspires us to find out more about our own family stories. The real tips neatly included remind us to teach our young people what we know. We would all benefit to have a caring relative to pass forward the stories of each generation. Everyone deserves to have their own Uncle Bobbie to buffer the rapid change of today's world. Ms. Blomgren reminds us to reach out with her lovely story of fiction based on fact. The book concludes with full instructions to make the butterfly quilt should you be moved to create your own piece of Americana history.

The "Tale of Alice's Quilt" is a charmingly positive story about generosity and care that works on many levels. The author uses a true story of a quilt made over two generations to knit present and past people together. She shows the reader the connections between the young and old and the continuous fabric of life and family in a way that a young reader can appreciate. Although I will not be making the quilt myself, it seems to be clearly laid out in the back of the book. I do enjoy going to quilt shows frequently and will see quilting in a new light after reading this memorable and uplifting tale.

Although they say this is for a younger audience, I picked it up for myself, without realizing the age group, and loved it. Easy reading. It moved me so much, I want to create the quilt in the back of the book.
This is a charming story for young girls about making connections across generations. Alice's discovery of pieces of an old family quilt leads her to meet new people and create closer ties with her own family, past and present. This book would make a great gift for children and grandchildren of quilters!
