    This is the signature of someone on here - I'm REALLY sorry, I don't remember who! :oops:

    Quilters are warm people.

    I love the double meaning of it! And it's true to boot! :-D

    Just a few,

    A family is a patchwork of love

    Anytime is Stitchin time

    As ye Sew, sew shall ye rip

    Behind every Quilter is a huge pile of fabric

    Blessed are the piecemakers for they shall quilt forever

    Good friends are like quilts, they age with you, yet never loose their warmth

    My husband lets me buy all the material I hide!

    and one of my favorites!
    I got a new sewing machine for my husband, Good trade huh? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    This is kind of long, but every quilt I give as a gift I put these in with it.

    How Much Like A 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.

    Another one --

    Life Is Like A Quilt

    Life is like a patchwork quilt
    And each little patch is a day.
    Some patches are rosy, happy and bright
    And some are dark and grey.

    But each little patch as it's fitted in
    And sewn to keep it together,
    Makes a finished block in this life of ours
    Filled with sun and rainy weather.

    So let me work on Life's patchwork quilt
    Through the rainy days and the sun
    Trusting that when I have finished my block
    The Master may say, "Well Done."

    I don't know who these were written by, but I do cherish them. I hope you keep them with you as I do

    Edie

    They do me too! Actually, it is how I feel - and somebody just put it into quilting words and there it is!

    I also coined:
    No wonder I'm a quilter, my friends keep me in stitches.

    I like pithy sayings, what else can I say? lol! :lol:

    When your heart needs patched
    And just in time,
    I won't give you one...
    I'll give you nine! :D

    Thank you, Amma, I don't remember where I saw them, but I thought them quite apropos and I use those two and a story about an Angel and a tattered quilt in each of the books I write to go with a finished quilt. It is kinda long, but ever so beautiful. If anyone wants me to send it along, I would be glad to.

    We had a doozie snow yesterday. Came up like gangbusters and the wind was horrendous. So I look out my window and see drifts I do not want to shovel this year. I would just like to stay inside and watch the world go by and stick close to my quilting.

    I love all your poems and quotes. I would like to see the one about the angel and the tattered quilt. A long time ago I saw a framed poem about Grndma's quilt but could not afford it. A quote that applied to my life was "When life hands you scraps, make a quilt." Thank you, Gabrielle (angel)
