A Legacy Quilt Poem

Legacy of Stitches

Sandra E. Andersen 2001-2008

A Legacy of Stitches is what we leave behind;
the imprint of our very soul that lasts beyond our time.

The heart that quilts knows, oh, so well the peace that can be found,
as needle meets with fabric, for there is no sweeter sound.

Whether quiet piecing done by hand or on our sewing machine,
there’s rhythm to our stitches as we sew along each seam.

Those stitches tell the story of our lives as they unfold
as we think of quilts that Grandma made with stories left untold.

The humdrum of our daily lives grows elegant and grand,
when we start to cut the pieces, then stitch the fabric in our hands.

And whatever is the reason for the quilts we piece and sew,
and whoever is the maker, there is one thing that we know.

Each quilt is full of memories, and is a treasured thing.
If quilts could talk, imagine how some quilts would surely sing!

For some quilts are sewn in happy times and others when we’re sad,
and some are sewn in laughter and others when we’re mad.

Some are sewn to warm us, and some sewn just for fun,
and some are “works in progress” that never quite get done!

Some quilts are sewn for beauty, a quilt made just for “show”,
but the heart of the true quilter is the one who really knows~

That no matter how the quilt is stitched, we leave our mark in time.
This Legacy of Stitches is what we leave behind.
