My First Journal Quilt

Here is my week 1 journal quilt. If you read my previous post, I talked about one of my goals being a weekly journal quilt. I created this one with raw edge applique, free motion quilting, and instead of a traditional binding, I satin stitched the edges. I created a house setting because early this week Bob had to leave home to take a job about 500 miles away. He may be gone for up to 3 or 4 weeks. If you look at the windows on the house, you'll see they look lit up. I was going after the meaning of "I've left the light on so you can find your way home".

  3. Maybe Bob being away is a double edged sword - does this mean you'll be able to spend more time creating?

  6. This is a beautiful quilt, Terri, made even moreso because of the lovely sentiment behind it. Bob's a lucky guy, and I'm sure he feels the pull to return home to you! Happy New Year...

  15. It is a lovely piece. I have that same "grass" fabric and used it in a piece a good while back.

    Keep up the good work and "keep the light on".
