Kimbra Ussery 8/31/2011 The Miracle Quilt I think the author wants us to realize the value in everything even if it is not in its best condition anymore. This quilt had already been discarded by another shopper because of its condition, but it was still beautiful to the writer. She bought it, took it home, cleaned it up, and placed it at the end of her bed to cherish. She did not know who the quilt’s original owner or creator was nor did she know their story behind it, but she understood how much work they put into it so she could not bear for it to be mistreated or damaged further. I also think the author is very family-oriented because she often refers to the time she spent with her grandmother. She also sees the importance of sentimental value over materialistic value. She could have went to almost any store and found a much prettier or cooler blanket to buy, however, she chose the quilt that has a story and meaning behind it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
