This inspires me to feel gratitude towards the mother, as it shows that she is helpful, always there and willing to help her son.

One quote on page 133 is, “For a few minutes I felt safe again.” this is a quote coming from Adeline’s conscience and how she feels safe when she is not around Niang. It is important because the emotion is persistently on Adeline’s mind when near Niang or Father. Last, Adeline states on page 52, “ She is my best friend and cares about me in every way. Not only about my hair, my clothes, and how I look; but also about my studies, my thoughts and what I am.” this is one of the most powerful quotes overall said by Adeline.

Through warm imagery and reminiscent tone, the measure of this quilt to Waniek's life is illustrated as a profound connection and admiration of her family and a nostalgic escape.

"yellow sisters/white family" Wankiek speaks of her two distinct races, the Indian and the white, in an acclaiming manner which once again connects the loveliness of the quilt and how it acts as a catalyst to the influx of memories of a wholesome home that sees no color
