Santa Cloth by Daphne John
(Inspired by this poem about quilting.)
He packed up the Concords, Marcus’ and Beyer –
Then piled the Hoffmans and Henrys still higher.
The Hopkins, Crows and Hortens were added with glee –
Plus Indos and Speigals and then P & B.
(all designer brands of fabric)
The sleigh was soon ready – the deer set to go.
Stars lit the sky mid soft-falling snow
The journey was started to bring “piecing" to Earth.
Then he thought to himself about Christ and his birth.
Then I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight….
“MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL…
PEACE TO QUILTERS THIS NIGHT”
From PIECE ON EARTH by Harriet M. Wyant
