Reuben was ducking strawberries in the truck patch when his dad got the idea about making a quilt. The whole family would help. They would make the quilt as beautiful as possible. Then they would sell it at the auction to raise money for the sick old man on the next farm. But the colorful log cabin quilt disappears before they have a chance to give it away. This hearty Amish family faces a new adventure! Moss and Good’s new collaboration is as rich and lively as their two highly successful earlier booksReuben and the Fire and Reuben and the Blizzard. This revised edition features updated text and newly designed pages.
