This design was inspired by community spirit: the way in which a community rallies around each other, creating a centre hub of love. The swallows represent close friends and family that hold us close to their hearts. The HST border represents our immediate community - the people we work and play with - which for me on this project is the kind & generous quilting community. The squares with windows represents the homes in our neighbourhood that give us a sense of belonging. The outer multicoloured stripe border represents the circle of people from all walks of life that make up our extended communities, held together by cornerstones of love and good intentions. The semi-circles represent the landscapes in nature that connect communities globally. We are sometimes far away and yet we are still ONE human race. We all need to look after each other.
