    I saw it when I was surfing through the channels but I never watched it. Next time I see it on I'll either watch it or record it. Thank you!

    Yes, it's an excellent movie! Saw it in the theater when it came out sometime in the 90's. Then my girlfriend and I saw the wedding quilt (all the quilters were working on in the movie) at a quilt shop in Temecula, CA. It was absolutely stunning in person!!! Also met a couple of the main quilters of the piece...it was a fun afternoon!

    The movie was based on a book of the same name by Whitney Otto...it's a good read, too!

    I was aghast at that too. Shame on Winona Ryder! I thought all of the actesses in the movie were outstanding.....

    It is a great chick flick. Recently saw it and want to see again.
    Grab a cup'o, your quilt, and curl up for a good evening of entertainment. Oh, grab the kleenex.
    Wish we could all see it together. What a blubbering bunch of quilters we would be. Oh the fun we would have.
    Lokee a pajama party.
