What makes the quilts valuable to Dee and Maggie in "Everyday Use"?

High School Teacher
To Dee, the quilts' value reside in what she believes they represent--specifically her family's African-American heritage, and more generally, African-American heritage at-large. Her interest in them is analogous to her own interest in exploring her heritage--an interest that may merely be passing from the perspective of her mother. To Maggie, the quilts' value is far more practical. To her, their value resides in their intended use as quilts, a stark contrast from Dee's interest.
