TOP SECRET Quilts For Friends

TOP SECRET quilts for friends

These two quilts for dear friends were made from scraps and hope to grace their new homes with amazing memories and good luck for years to come.


Collaborative quilt made from a quilt top and fabrics by the fabulous Madison Creech (creechers.com). Madison’s pieced black and white stripes, flying geese, and hand screenprinted textiles inspire me with their graphic quality and soulful hand-drawn quality.

Planning the quilt with lyrics:

Golden years, gold, whop, whop, whop
Golden years, gold, whop, whop, whop
Golden years, gold, whop, whop, whop

Don’t let me hear you say life’s
taking you nowhere,
angel

Come get up my baby
Look at that sky, life’s begun
Nights are warm and the days are young
Come get up my baby

[CHORUS] There’s my baby lost that’s all
Once I’m begging
you save her little soul
Golden years, gold, whop, whop, whop
Come get up my baby

Last night they loved you,
opening doors
and pulling some strings, angel
Come get up my baby
In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall,
act fine
Come get up my baby

I’ll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing’s gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Some of these days, and it won’t be long
Gonna drive back down
where you once belonged
In the back of a dream car
twenty foot long
Don’t cry my sweet,
don’t break my heart
Doing all right,
but you gotta get smart
Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe oh lord
I believe all the way
Come get up my baby

[CHORUS]

Don’t let me hear you say life’s
taking you nowhere,
angel

Come get up my baby
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years

I’ll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing’s gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
Golden years, gold whop whop whop [Repeat]
