The Words of Wisdom quilt was created by children and volunteers of If I Had Known, a mentoring group based in Dallas, TX. The book features photographs of each square accompanied by a short essay contemplating its meaning. A timeline of the project and suggestions for starting your own community project are included.
All proceeds from the sales of this book benefit If I Had Known.
