Stitches

The People's Friend Special - - CONTENTS -

by Mag­gie In­gall

as a but­ter­fly, Or sub­tle as a moth, The fab­ric finds its magic in The plac­ing of the cloth. The choos­ing and the cut­ting, The pat­terns and the pins, The dance of flash­ing nee­dle . . . The alchemy be­gins. The scraps take on a struc­ture With ev­ery coloured thread No pic­ture quite emerg­ing Un­til we see it spread. And then the true en­chant­ment, The magic is dis­played With care and skil­ful pa­tience – A per­fect quilt’s been made!
