Quilts can tell lovely stories. In her much anticipated first book, For Keeps: Meaningful Patchwork for Every Day Living, Amy Gibson teaches you how to make quilts today that will become family heirlooms - not because of their meticulous construction, but because of the stories they tell and the stories they will inspire.

17 fabulous projects are divided into two sections: Memory Makers and Memory Keepers. The quilts are showcased throughout the book in over 100 inspiring and beautiful photographs

Popcorn Please - a family movie night quilt Once Upon a Time - a children's storybook pillow Sunday in the Park - a picnic quilt Hideaway -a tent quilt Make a Move-a game-board quilt with bean bag game pieces, and many more

Memory Keepers. These inspiring designs foster new family traditions including :

Celebrate You - a quilted birthday banner Love Letters - a quilt inspired by handwritten messages Filmstrip - a photo quilt Family Secrets - patchwork recipe binder Tear Drops - a comforting vintage hanky quilt, and other sweet projects
