The Quiltmaker's Gift is a modern fable of a greedy King and an old woman high in the mountains creating quilts for the poor people in the towns below.  What happens when the greedy King demands a gift from the Quiltmaker?  Will she give him one?

This book is filled with visual detail and is a perfect accompaniment to the text.  The endpapers of this book are decorated with quilts and their names.  The discerning reader will spy these quilts scattered throughout the story.  This book became a firm favourite with everyone in our family.
