Secrets of an Old Quilt
Today, I went up to the attic,
And found a quilt that grandma made.
The binding was worn, the pieces tattered,
And the colors had begun to fade.
There were silks and wools and calicos.
In a pattern of the nine patch kind.
They were precision cut and precision sewn,
And with an intricate quilting design.
She pieced the top at the quilting bee,
It helped her quilt the days away.
And they talked about everybody,
Who didn’t help quilt that day.
Only if that quilt could talk…
Oh the words that would be conveyed.
Of the gossip at the quilting bee,
In the quilt that grandma made…
The green rimmed plate is from a collection of five different floral patterns. They have a pretty mark on the bottom of one acorn in a basket that looks sort of like a mote. Bone China Hammersley & Co. Made in England.
