Home for Christmas

Another quilt to snuggle under this season, as I'll be Home for Christmas.



In trying to come up with a name for this quilt, I tried to consider it's makeup, so bear with me on the logic. The setting is an offset barn raising of half log cabin blocks. Now a barn could be considered a home, to animals at least, and of course, the Christmas birthday we're celebrating supposedly occurred in a barn. Though a barn is usually not constructed like a log cabin, the barn/home in this quilt is composed of half log cabin blocks, further establishing that this is 'home'.

And what 'home' would not be complete without a tree? Whether it's the wood that makes the home, provides shade for the home, or decorates the home, as does this Christmas tree, a home is not complete without a tree.



Thus, the log cabin barn raising and the tree combine to make Home for Christmas. 

Quilted in gold with the panto Holiday Garland, it was the perfect topping for this double sided quilt - the panto looks beautiful on both sides.
