We each have a life story, penned without ink, read by the people around us. Who's writing your story?

Crazy Quilt

Gathered from an old trunk
Negligent in design
Few quilting stitches, tiny and even
 No fibers of cotton
No log cabins or geese flying
No stars pieced
Contrary angles
Puzzle pieces mixed up
No story told
A kaleidoscope of color
Silk, wool, velvet
Threads of gold
 A timeless treasure

Sarah Lynn Phillips

Victorian Crazy Quilt, 1890
