Sydney Taylor Book Award/Carnegie Medal Honor Book.

When Patricia’s Great-Gramma Anna came to America as a child, the only things she brought along from Russia were her dress and the babushka she liked to throw up into the air when she was dancing. Soon enough, though, Anna outgrew the dress and her mother decided to incorporate it and the babushka into a quilt. “It will be like having the family in backhome Russia dance around us at night,” she said. And so it was. Together with her Uncle Bladimir’s shirt, Aunt Havalah’s nightdress, and an apron of Aunt Natasha’s, Anna’s mother made a quilt that would be passed down through their family for almost a century. From one generation to the next, the quilt was used as a Sabbath tablecloth, a wedding canopy, and a blanket to welcome each new child into the world. 48 pages. ISBN-13 9780689820908
