Prudence True


Sue Reich of  Washington Depot, Ct has generously allowed us to share a poem that she found and posted on her blog. Our staff laughed and laughed when we read it and we bet you will, too.  Be sure to read it to the end.  We think you will agree that quilters have a lot in common no matter how times change.

Miss True’s Quilt.

In seventeen hundred seventy-two,

Did the good matron, Prudence True,

A saintly soul, devoid of guilt,

Begin her famous crazy quilt,

And told her helpmeet, Goodman True,

She’d finish in a month or two;

And Goodman True, as good men do.

Believed  his good wife, Prudence True.
