The Quilt

Piece by piece

Scrap to scrap

One small bit at a time…

                        Sewn together.

Solid, floral, themed or batik

Each piece unique…

                        Together diverse

Infinite design

Layered on top of

                        Wool, cotton, cornhusk or hay

That in turn is placed

upon a soft warm layer

                         To touch the skin

Tied together

Finished as one

This is what we are…

                         United in our diversity 

                                                                        AND  our commonality.
