Baby Quilt: Squares and Strips Leftovers!


Baby's Quilt

The sun came up this morning

It's promise sweet and long
A new child shares this day with meThe birds begin their songs.
A special gift of squares and strips
Was sewn for baby's coverThe sparkling patches quite reflectOur feeling for each other.
The beauty of the days ahead
Are sewn in every seam.I'll wrap you up and hold you tightAnd anticipate the dream.
Author: M. (Marilyn) Robinson -- from the book, "P.S. I Love You"

A simple baby gift, made with someone's thrown away squares and strips. There were barely enough to fill a ziplock bag, but they made a wonderful find for me, and a wonderful gift for a new little one!
