Quilt Festival Entry


From October 9th to 13th there is an online quilt show showcasing quilts from all over the world. Click this link for many wonderful quilts and also to join in.

As this quilt show is a hanger's choice I have decided to showcase a quilt which I made many, many years ago. The face is that of my eldest son PJ when he was about 11 month's old.

I have called it Going Home to suggest him being a long way away but with his thoughts and dreams still looking home.

Funny that is how the situation has developed and he now studies in Paris and will be over there for many more years, but he does hope to come home permanently at some stage. The quilt was made about 15 or 16 years ago.

I connected with this quilt immediately...love what you have created. Our son now lives in Alaska, living his dream of being a professional photographer, instructor and guide. Our children may be thousands of miles away but are forever held close to our hearts.
Thank you so much for sharing your story.
