Reviews in German: «Ein Studentin hört während eines Sommeraufenthalts bei ihrer Grossmutter die Lebensberichte älterer Frauen an, die für sie eine Hochzeitsdecke fertigen. - Handgestrickt.» (tele 20/2008)

"Delightful, warm, tender, intelligent film about human relations and life as it is, told with insight and compassion. A group of women gather to make a quilt, each telling the story of her life and loves. Remarkable story, played in perfect counterpoint by each actress. In many ways a return to civilised, basic human values. It should be seen." ***** Owen Williams, Argus April 20, 1996
"Exquisitely lensed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, the film overplays its beauty at times; nevertheless, at the end of the myriad journeys, one is left feeling warm, radiant and very impressed at the gentle mutual trust which the actors and the crew bring to the story." Andrew Worsdale in Mail & Guardian March 15, 1996
