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".
