Tillie The Quilter
By Patricia Littlefield
Tillie the quilter made tote bags
for all of her quilting friends.
In them, they'd put all their treasures,
as well as some odds and ends.
Some bags were red, and others were blue,
and some were made out of khaki.
She also made others that one
would have to call tacky.
Each bag was equipped with zippers
and lots of pockets galore,
for quilters need places to put things
they buy at their nearby quilt store.
A hui hou,
