We give thanks for cotton, for colors bold and bright,
For pastel tints, the rainbows hues, for shades both dark and light
We give thanks for batting-so puffy, soft and clean
Packaged for quilts of every size for beds from crib to queen
We offer thanks for templates, for needles, scissors, threads,
That help us make the quilts we want to cover our beds
Supplies for quilts are plentiful; we're grateful for the riches
Of materials to work with as we take our careful stitches
We're grateful too, for magazines that gives us all the news
Of other quilters around the world and patterns that they choose
But most of all, we're thankful for the comfort and the pleasure
That we get from knowing quilters and making quilts to treasure
Let's all be grateful for the marvelous Blessings bestowed upon us!
