Visual gags, humour, sound effects, live action and cut-out and embroidery
animation combine to make this an enchanting parable of good will and
understanding. A group of children finds a magic quilt that is their passport
to a voyage of discovery. They step inside the quilt and as they travel
through its velvet farmlands and satin cities, they experience the
multiculturalism of Canada. The quilt is torn and the magic broken when a
quarrel breaks out. Once the quilt is repaired and harmony restored, the
children have learned that patience and goodwill are needed to mend and
maintain quilts, friendships, and nations.
