Last year I started a year long project named "Home Sweet Home". This was an Internet pattern which was offered by the "Quilt Happy, Quilt Often" blog. Here's how mine looks, all finished and in a frame.
I didn't quilt it because the appliques are made of felt and they are very fragile.
I love the way it turned out. So, I'm going to enter it as a challenge project.
Silver Needles Quilt Guild, of which I am a member, is having our annual quilt challenge unveiling at the February meeting.
Our challenge this year was to prepare a project that reflected a poem or quote.
Here's the poem that goes with this project:
WHEN I THINK OF HOME (SWEET HOME)
Caitlin L. Crawford
When I think of "home" I think of cherry pies
When I think of "home" I think of hummingbirds
sun brewed tea
Grandma and me
When I think of "home" I think of hidden trails
signs of spring
When I think of "home" I think of bedtime stories
When I think of "home" I can't help but chuckle
Because when I think of "home" I think of Heaven
of all that's kind
When I think of "home" Grandma comes to mind

This is the original project that I created for the challenge. The center is an embroidery design from an Internet designer, featured on the "Birdie Stitches" blog block of the month for 2011. This was the April design.
I don't know if you can read the quote, but it says:
"Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps the singing bird will come."
