Patch­work Quilt It

The People's Friend Special - - PERIOD STORY -

was only a quilt in patch­work That came from Granny’s bed, But ev­ery square was worked with love And stitched with coloured thread. Each print had a dif­fer­ent pat­tern Flo­ral, stripy, plain And many a swatch of fab­ric Went into this coun­ter­pane. Cal­ico, cot­ton and satin In mauve, turquoise and gold, And patches of scar­let vel­vet Stood out bright and bold. The quilt is a trea­sured pos­ses­sion. This hand­made work of art Brings mem­o­ries of Granny’s day Just so close to my heart.
