All You Need Is...

In the immortal words of The Beatles, 'All you need is love'. 


After having captured Grace's 5 year old handwritten 'love', which has been my VERY favorite embroidery project so far...


I was inspired to capture and preserve more 'love'.


So, I cut 6 inch squares, out of white cotton fabric, and I'm having those near and dear to Grace, write 'love' and sign their names.


When I've collected enough 'love', I'll either frame them OR turn them into a quilt for Grace.

The quilt will be titled, 'All you need is...'  Grace is so blessed because she is loved by many and I never want her to forget it.  If ever she needs a little extra love, I hope she'll find comfort wrapped in a warm quilt surrounded by the love of those near and dear to her.

Until then, I'll be busy collecting love and embroidering.


All while humming 'All you need is love'.

Nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

All you need is love

  9. Think this is such a beautiful idea. You could make a couple of pillows out of these since you don't like quilting. Or, you really could try your hand at hand quilting. This might be a good starter project for you!

  10. i absolutely LOVE this! it's the perfect keepsake and a way for her to keep those who love her most so close, even when they may not be with her. this might make a good wedding gift as well (by having the guests write a word that's important to marriage and signing it).
