Patchwork Quilt
Written by Sara Petite

She had a little pink house, little pink stairs,
Pink carnations in the evening air
Izzy mad me a patchwork quilt
She’d can, she’d knit, she’d garden, she’d sew
We all reaped the food she’d grow
Izzy made me a patchwork quilt

She made me a patchwork quilt
Made it from love, burlap and silk,
Calico, cotton, denim and felt
She made me a patchwork quilt

She’d take scraps from the neighbors,
Scraps from a vest,
From a curtain, from a coat, from a party dress
Izzy made me a patchwork quilt
She used old shirts, old hand me downs
Buttons and ribbons and evening gowns
Izzy made me a patchwork quilt

And as she sewed she’d go on and on
About my grandma Kate and great grandpa John
Izzy made me a patchwork quilt
She said they lived in the depression you know
My folks fed the hungry, the homeless, the cold
Izzy made me a patchwork quilt

It’s not the riches and fortunes
It’s the good deeds you do,
It’s a heart full of love and your family too
And even the old ones still need loving from you
She made me a patchwork quilt.
