Finn is a young graduate student, finishing a master's thesis, and preparing for marriage to her fiance Sam. But thoughts of the end of the free life, and a potential summer fling, intrude. She goes home to her grandmother, where, over the making of her wedding gift by a group of quilting-bee friends, laughter, bickering, love, and advice lead her toward a more open-eyed examination of her course.Written by

Although they share no scenes together, the film reunites three actresses from Little Women (1994): Winona Ryder, Samantha Mathis, and Claire Danes. Winona Ryder would later star in Girl, Interrupted (1999) which also starred Jared Leto. See more »
When Finn meets Leon at the pool for the first time, she sometimes is shown to be wearing a towel around her waist, and other times there's no towel...(during the same conversation) See more »
I have watched parts of this movie more than once. The movie from start to finish only once. Each story unfolds like a facet on the quilt. Then as the main plot line draws to a conclusion, the thread that binds these stories together resolves each individual facet, to complete the whole.
Quilting as I understand it, is bringing many contributions together to create a final product. Each little design tells a story and the master quilter put's these stories together , to convey a theme or message.
I have not read the novel, but the movie conveys the message in it's title.
The soundtrack is tranquil and adds to the mood.
The interplay between Burstyn and Bancroft is a pleasure to watch. Winona is excellent.
