Bride-to-be Finn Dodd hears tales of romance and sorrow from her elders as they construct a quilt.
Finn is a young graduate student, finishing a master's thesis, and preparing for marriage to her fiance Sam. But thoughts of the end of the free life, and a potential summer fling, intrude. She goes home to her grandmother, where, over the making of her wedding gift by a group of quilting-bee friends, laughter, bickering, love, and advice lead her toward a more open-eyed examination of her course.
A hunk hits on cutie Winona Ryder at the public pool. She's already set to be married to her fiance but it looks like she's also attracted to the guy, more in a physical way since she keeps checking his body out. After a few meetings, she meets the hunk in the middle of an orchard late one night (1:18:28). He kisses her, lays her on the ground, kisses her more and they have implied sex.
