Quilting Christmas Carol by Judie Bellingham

Every year about this time, I put together a little "ditty" in keeping with the Christmas season that is heading our way. I like to pick a traditional carol and then write lyrics that suit the topic I select. My topics change depending on my mood at the time.

This year in keeping with my Quilting life I've decided to write one for the Quilting Guilds and Cottage Groups out there, who will be organising their Christmas parties and end of year gatherings. So here it is fellow quilters. I give my permission for all non-for profit Quilting Guilds and non-for profit cottage groups to use this carol as part of their entertainment. This carol is sung to the traditional carol "Deck the Halls" and with tongue firmly in cheek.
Enjoy!
