    This book will intrigue any reader interested in American history, quilts, or the art of the human soul. A book is more than paper and ink, as a quilt is more than cloth and thread. Lipsett illuminates the lives of women who worked the names of loved ones and pieced together patches of remembrances into treasured friendship quilts. Historically the lives of the women were often fraught with hardship and deprivation. This book shares the beauty and joy these women created in the form of friendship quilts. For many women of the era, the quilts they left behind were the only concrete evidence that they ever existed. The cameo biographies bring the reader into the lives of these women. The photos and explanations emphasize the significance quilts have played in the lives of people. A wonderful book.

    There is something about friendship quilts that touches our hearts. Seeing those names from the past we wonder about these people. What were they like? What were their lives like? Linda Otto Lipsett wondered too and that wondering became this book. In “Remember Me” , she tells the stories of seven women and their friendship quilts. Along with the women’s stories are beautiful pictures of their quilts as well as great old photographs of the women and their times. In order to write this book Lipsett interviewed numerous relatives and others who remembered these woman. Through the stories in this book we become aware of what it was like to be a woman during the times when these quilts were made. Somehow reading these stories written on such a personal level makes their lives so very real.

  3. This book is actually a great book about friendship quilts. There are several stories about different women and how their quilts evolved. I really like the book. I didn’t like the fact that I bought it for a gift and then it turns out it was a libary book and had the library info stuff on the spine and inside cover. I wasn’t able to give it as a gift and kept it for myself.
