    Run past your computer screen when you look at this so you don't see the flaws! I think it will be enjoyed so much by a hospitalized child who just wants to go home, but can't yet. I will be putting a label on the back before it gets quilted, and I think I will call the quilt "Can't Wait to Be Back Home."

    Anyway, this was fun to make. I found the pattern in an older book called "Say It With Quilts." I made the houses out of scraps.

    Your quilt is so bright and colorful. I'm sure the child you quilted it for will absolutely love it. I didn't see any flaws - it was sewed with love = no flaws there :D

    Okay, quilters! Listen up! According to many professional teachers I have heard - - we must learn to practice the twenty/twenty exercise.
    If you cannot see the mistake driving by it at twenty feet from the quilt at 20 miles an hour ... there IS NO MISTAKE! LOL
    It is a good thing to be the best you can be. It is a good thing to always work on getting better. It is even a good thing to be humble most of the time. However! Anyone who has time to look at a quilt for mistakes needs to go get a job ... they have waayyy too much time on their hands.

    not saying that applies to the quilter I quoted ... I thought her remarks were just fine ... I wanted to spin off from what tlrnhi wrote to add to it ...and thinking about an unkind remark from another thread ... I apologize if I hurt anyone's feelings. That was not my intent, though, looking at it, now ... I just am not sure that my intent was conveyed ... :oops:

    You all do such good work. Even our beginners work diligently to achieve "perfection" ... quilting should bring joy for quilter and recipient, and those of us on the sidelines are doing a good job of cheering everyone on ... I really was cheering ... I am cheering, and am cheered by all of your input and sharing with each other.

    It will certainly brighten up a childs day and when they look at it they will think of home. I think you killed two birds with one stone on this one. I love it. I wish we could see a picture of the child who recieves it.

    In case anyone else is in the mood to make a charity quilt right now, I wanted to give you a link to www.quiltsforkids.org the organization that gets small quilts to hospitalized children. They will even take your ugly fabrics off your hands and make them into quilts, if that is what you want to donate.

    This is where I am sending the houses quilt top. They will get it finished for me, which is really great.

    FYI: The donated quilts get washed every day, so they want quilted, not tied quilts.

    This is a really great group. They were in Quilt magazine recently. And there are so many good places to donate quilts to, I hope everyone has a chance to send a little quilted love to someone who needs comfort.

    I just thought I would share that with you.
