Description
Linda Davis' local fabric shop is a place where women gather to share their creations: quilts commemorating important events in their lives. Wedding quilts, baby quilts, memorial quilts - each is bound tight with dreams, hopes and yearnings. Now, as her only child readies for college, Linda is torn between excitement for Molly and heartache for herself. Who will Linda be when she is no longer needed in her role as mom? What will become of her days? Of her marriage?

Mother and daughter decide to share one last adventure together - a cross-country road trip to move Molly into her dorm. As they make their way through the heart of the country, Linda pieces together the scraps that make up Molly's young life. And in the stitching of each bit of fabric - the hem of a christening gown, a snippet from a Halloween costume - Linda discovers that the memories of a shared journey can come together in a way that will keep them both warm in the years to come.
