Textile Arts; Needle Work - A Quilt

This is a twin size quilt made with the finest of fabrics from the local quilt store.  I am a strong believer of supporting my community.  

This quilt has been hand pieced and then free motion quilted on my Janome sewing/quilting machine.  

When I see this quilt, which is daily because it currently resides on the back of my favorite chair in my living room, it makes me feel warm inside.  It makes me think of Southern comfort - the warmness of the South; the hospitality we extend to family, friends, neighbors and even strangers; the  different foods we prepare and the way we present them to those sitting at our table.  Our openness and willingness to help those in need.  And without forgetting our one most favorite saying: "y'all come back now, ya hear!"
