The Twelve Days of Quilting

by

Mark Tiedeman of Quilter's Paradise

  On the first day of quilting
My true love sent to me
A fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the second day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the third day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the fourth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the fifth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the sixth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the seventh day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the eighth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Eight yards of yardage,
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the ninth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Nine patches popping,
Eight yards of yardage,
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the tenth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Ten seams a-stitchin',
Nine patches popping,
Eight yards of yardage,
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the eleventh day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Eleven shops a-hoppin',
Ten seams a-stitchin',
Nine patches popping,
Eight yards of yardage,
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.

On the twelfth day of quilting
My true love sent to me
Twelve quilters quilting,
Eleven shops a-hoppin',
Ten seams a-stitchin',
Nine patches popping,
Eight yards of yardage,
Seven suites for sewing,
Six geese a-flying,
Five gold pins,
Four combo blocks,
Three French braids,
Two tangled threads,
And a fat quarter folded sweetly.
