2012 Quilt Guild Challenge

Here is my finished block for the quilt guild challange.  Do you see me in it?  Well #1, the house represents home and family, both of which I love, thus the heart.  The log cabin block tells several things, #1, I live in a log home; #2 I love to quilt; #3 I am logcabinquilter in ebay and my blog.  I love vintage hankies and tatting and love using them in crazy quilts.  The bar of music tells you I love music and sing with the symphony chorus and anywhere  else I can.  The basket of flowers in the top left corner tell you that I love both.  I used to sell Longaberger baskets and have a large collection.  The sun represents many things to me . . . I need it in my life.  It represents Celestial glory.  The temple spire with Moroni on top represents the temple and the gospel.  The temple spire also tells you I love family history and seeking out my kindred dead.  The tear drops represent sorrows in my life and I have had many.  They also could be rain witch tells you I have SADD which leads us to the top right corner which represents depression.  It has played a large roll in my life and I deal with it.  Thanks Marion for the challange I really enjoyed doing it!


  1. How great that turned out! I looked at close-ups of the stitching and you have some very creative things going on there. I never would have thought to make a house out of that one piece. Was that your plan all along?

  2. Yes, home and family are very important to me, so I needed a home.
