How Much Like a Patchwork Quilt We Are

Some of us are bright and gay, some are quieter, more delicate and subdued. Yet how well we blend together, The quieter ones set off the colorful. The brighter ones accentuate the pastels. Often, the more fragile pieces Hold the sturdy ones together; Blessed are we to be varied. All of us are stitched with love and tied to one another. Reap the benefits of your sewing,Baste consideration into your life, Hem up disagreements, and embellish it all with love. May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. The best kind of sleep Beneath Heaven above Is under a quilt Handmade with Love.

Friends gather - To sew material scraps together - The scraps come togther - To make a Quilt on their laps - Lots of stories and laughter - Keep them all amused -Always a dish to pass - A new receipe to be found - Quilting, a tradition that be handed down - To every woman in town - Some came for the company - Some come to chat -Some come for laughs - Life can't get better than that.
