Love All Around

Well, hello there!  I know, it's been, well, ages since I logged in to write a blog post.  But, when your good sewing bud designs an awesome block, ask you to make a block and then blog about it, well, that's a good enough reason to dust off the ole keyboard and post!

So, my bud, Lee Monore, AKA, May Chappell, has created a super cute, super easy to do block called "Love All Around".  It's basically an hourglass block, some flying geese and half square triangles all assembled to make chevrons that remind one of hearts!  We could all use a little love, right?  So this sweet block is an homage to friendship, kindness and love.  It's a way to think about how I, personally, can be a kinder person and how I can be an influence for positivity this year.  

Here are the two I've made so far. 

Love All Around Blocks

I'm going to make a bunch of these, and try to use up a ton of scraps and make a scrappy love quilt!  Recipient to be determined!

Go to Lee's website for a tutorial of the block.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!  Check out all the other folks who have made some love blocks on IG or on their blogs.
