Elizabeth's Constellation Quilt by Olivia Fu Wanted to read this children's book because it's about quilts and I will be starting one myself next week and always looking for new ideas. Also has just started to actually see stars in the sky as I'm blind but have had a few operations recently. Each quilt does tell a story and this one holds more meaning. Starts out with the family, a father is a sailor and the parents try to teach the daughter about navigating by the stars. She can't seem to get a handle on it til her mother makes her a quilt out of the constellations. Then the images come clear to her. Problem is her father was sending her postcards from his various locations for work til they stopped one day. She hires a captain and she searches via the route her father took from the star configuration in hopes of finding his last destination... Loved the story and the brilliant colors. A few pages were hard to read because the colors blended into the pictures or background color. Super story! I received this book from Library Thing in exchange for my honest review.
