    I know I can count on you helpful friends for suggestions for movies to take on a bus trip. It is a 3 hour ride and I would like to show a movie each way. I am looking for something with quilts in it or about quilts for one way. Then anything that an assorted group of ladies from 30 - 80 would enjoy for the other way.
    any ideas????

    thanks!!

    I'm no help at all. I sleep on buses, I sleep on planes, I sleep on car trips (when I'm not driving) plus I get nauseous when I try to read when riding.

    And I take either a blanket or cape with me when traveling, buses and planes always have it too cold for my comfort zone. And I don't like the idea of using previously used, possibly unwashed between customers blankets on planes.

    You might suggest to the group that if they want, they could bring along a lap quilt for comfort. Also maybe a small cooler. I usually did, and used it as a foot rest, since my legs swell when they are flat on the floor for many hours. Plus, most bus foot rests are a joke...or at least were on the Via buses I used to ride on tours.

    How to Make an American Quilt!
    Synopsis: A young woman at a crossroads in her life finds herself receiving plenty of advice from her older and wiser counterparts in this drama. Finn Dodd (Winona Ryder) is a graduate student trying to finish up her doctoral thesis on women's folk art while deciding if she should marry her fiance Sam (Dermot Mulroney); she's not sure if she's ready to settle down, and suspects that Sam is unfaithful to her. Needing time to sort things out, Finn chooses to spend the summer with her grandmother Hy (Ellen Burstyn) and great aunt Gladys Jo (Anne Bancroft). Hy and Gladys Jo are avid quilters, and with a group of their friends, they work on a special quilt for Finn's wedding; as the women work together, they share stories of their lives, and Finn finds herself learning as much from hearing them talk as she does from her schoolwork. Finn also receives a visit from her free-spirited mom Sally (Kate Capshaw) and finds herself infatuated with a good looking young man who lives nearby. Maya Angelou plays one of the quilters, as do Kate Nelligan, Jean Simmons, and Alfre Woodard. How to Make an American Quilt was the directorial debut of Jocelyn Moorhouse, and was based on a novel by Whitney Otto that itself began as a doctoral thesis.
