    Default The Quilting Song Lyrics

    Hi All,

    I have Internet connectivity again, so I thought I'd post the lyrics to the song Jenny sang with us at the Fall Forum Retreat.

    KEEP IT IN YOUR STASH
    Lyrics by Rick Collins, c. 2016
    Sung to the tune of "Blowin' In The Wind" by Bob Dylan
    As seen on https://youtu.be/GdVZN0nTu5c

    What do you do with that old set of sheets, printed with hearts and Mickey Mouse?
    Oh and what do you do when a permanent stain has ruined your favorite blouse?
    And where do you put all the selvages and scraps, scattered all over your house?
    The answer, my friend, is keep it in your stash
    The answer is keep it in your stash.

    You must keep this small bit of Halloween print, as some day you'll surely find a match,
    And when your husband recycles that nice Hawaiian shirt, yes, that too will be a good catch.
    And you can't be expected to just throw away this solitary log cabin patch!
    The answer, my friend, is keep it in your stash
    The answer is keep it in your stash.

    What do you do when the piecing's all through, but the batting is four feet too long?
    When the yard sale next door has fabric galore, where oh where does it belong?
    Yes, amidst all this excess and yardage and cloth, how do you stay steadfast and strong?
    The answer, my friend, is keep it in your stash
    The answer is keep it in your stash.

    How many blocks of a quilt can be sewn, before the extra fabric peeks ...
    Out of every drawer, and every closet door, there's pastels, patterns and Batiks!
    And what can we all do to cover the truth, that now we are full quilting geeks?
    The answer, my friend, is keep it in your stash
    The answer is keep it in your stash.

    Someday, it will save you time,
    Someday, it will save you cash,
    'Cause you know that you
    Kept it in your stash!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    It was much more fun to watch you ladies sing this at the retreat than to read the lyrics.

    It was awesome and I enjoyed it along with the rest of you. Seeing it in person would have been better for sure. Jean, maybe you can redo it for us here in Canada next week!!!!!!
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Maybe not! Not traveling with guitar on an airplane! But we can all sing it a Capella!
