For "Hang Your Quilt Day" this month, the theme was "Hearts" or "Love". Shown from left to right the quilts are Four Hearts and It's a Party. I think it is fun the way the Welcome sign and its shadow are in the first photo.

The label and binding are all that remain to complete this quilt. Before binding I attach my two grosgrain ribbon labels diagonally on the back lower quilt corners, one with the quilt name and one with my initials and year; therefore, before I can bind the quilt, I must decide on a name for it. I'd been contemplating several name choices but none quite hit the mark. I name a quilt for its features and not for its recipient. Reviewing the prints in the fabric selections I reflected on my favorites. I liked the little elfin people and bunnies dining around a small table like at a tea party. The small creatures – foxes, hedgehogs, pixies, and more bunnies – who are happily gathered in the fields amongst the bright red mushrooms seem ready to socialize and have fun. The houses also look so inviting – the one in the upper left with its beckoning banners and in the one in the lower right with its welcoming path. The birds twittering on the telephone line up in the sky seem to be immersed in cheerful conversation. Perhaps they are on a "party line". (Readers too young to know what a party line is – or rather was – are invited to check out this Wikipedia link on telephony.)
