When I heard about the theme, Communication, I first thought about telephones and how they have changed. I remember when we had a summer camp there were several families on the same line. You had to pick up the phone, listen to see if it was free before you made a call. Then we had a phone but only needed to dial 5 digits. I also thought about last winter when Lois and I were on a trip to Vietnam with a our husbands and a group. As we were traveling we saw many telephone poles covered with wires. I'm sure a lot of the wires were for electricity and not for telephones. I kept thinking about all the calls we make flowing thru the wires. I've attached a photo of the wires. I decided to show different telephones and a tin can phone we used as kids. I machine appliqued the phones onto the backing. I then collected old wires from our basement, stripped off the outer plastic and stitched them in place. I then stamped the words blah blah blah on the quilt.
