Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The central image of this collection of Roberta Hill Whiteman's poetry is that of a handmade gift sewn to last for generations. In an interview in Contact II, Whiteman says that a star quilt helps people, perhaps as a protector of a person seeking a vision. The title poem "Star Quilt" sets the tone and themes for the book, introducing the parallelism between makers of quilts and makers of poems.
