    Baby Quilt Poem

    I am looking for a poem to label a baby quilt which expresses the quilt isn't an heirloom or keepsake but should be used and loved. There is one credited to Nancy Sherlock that is very similar but the one I saw included a line about using the quilt as a saddle for the dog. I have searched and searched for it but don't find it. Does anyone recognize it? I would appreciate any help locating it. Thanks!

    LOL, saddle for a dog. Probably the only thing my grandson's not done with his dozen or so quilts.

    Thank you, NanaCsews2, I have seen that sight. The one I'm looking for mentions using the quilt as a tent, a saddle for the dog, Superman's cape, etc. Things that are perfect for a little boy. I had just started making a quilt for my great nephew when I saw it and thought "that's great, I need to remember where it is so I can use it". Can you guess the rest? This old brain doesn't work like it used to.

    Poem for a boy's quilt...

    I have found one that sounds like it might be about right... is this it? Maybe you could work the saddle for a dog in there somehow!

    This Quilt Author Unknown

    This quilt is made of cloth and thread
    To place upon your little bed.
    Itís not an heirloom Ė just to keep,
    But to lay upon as you count sheep.
    Or perhaps the floorís the perfect place
    For a doll and teddy picnic space.
    This quilt can be anything you can dream Ė
    From Supermanís cape to the robe of a queen.
    Pretend itís a raft adrift at sea,
    Or just cuddle up when you watch TV.
    So use it up and wear it out Ė
    I promise I wonít yell or pout.
    Just tell me when its days are through,
    And Iíll make another, just for you.
