Patchwork Quilt It
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.
