Reading the Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, Ronda was moved by the ‘everywoman’ quality of that montage of memoirs of Chinese-American women. Years later, while patching together a quilt for her bed and thinking about how the quilting bee had become a literary symbol, suddenly the two images came together. Why not assemble a book of memoirs of women she knew, using squares of fabric as the device? She would invite friends of many backgrounds to let the memory of particular pieces of fabric call up the feelings they had about incidents in the different stages of their lives. This book is just that kind of literary quilt.
