Mother Loves to Quilt

Mother Loves to Quilt by Areanne Collins 

The Master Seamstress 

loves to mix and match

different fabrics. She uses the 

different colors and textures

to weave together a palette

that is soothing yet exciting

to even the untrained eye.

 

She follows no pattern,

working out the math 

as She goes. Patiently,

She creates.

One stitch at a time,

She joins together

rough cut pieces, 

seaming a masterpiece.

 

After a long time 

and no time at all,

She binds together Her 

favorite memories, slowly 

ensuring that there are

no loose ends.

She has made something that

symbolizes Her love

to give to her children

to keep them warm,

remind them of Her,

and guide them Home.
