A Child's Quilt

A child’s quilt

By a Grandmother stitched

Full of love

In every thread

In every square


A child sleeps

A child grows

Wrapped in warmth

Wrapped in dreams

Wrapped in love


Worn with age

A tattered quilt

Gone its warmth

Gone its beauty


But the dreams

And the love

These do remain

To hold and share

The legacy of a child’s quilt

And a Grandmother’s care

Beautiful poem and Block.
I saw Susan yesterday and viewed the pictures from last week. Loved the quilt show. Hope you are having a good week.

I loved those old quilts Grandma made for us all... they were so soft and comfy.
