Day 224: The Happy House Quilt

My cousin, Mary Frances Wood lives in Forest, Virginia.  She is a prize winning quilter as well as a professional genealogist.  So when we go to visit, my husband, Ron, can talk for hours about family history. I just love admiring her handwork.  This quilt which she kindly gave to me on our last visit was an entry in a contest about "Home" or perhaps it was "House" themed quilts.  I just love the design and the bright and happy colors.  This is the kind of house I would call a home.  
As Thanksgiving draws near I have so much to be grateful for.  I am reminded that one of the purposes of art/craft is to tie us together.  This lovely hand made piece is a testament to this.  Thank you, Mary Frances.
