It only takes ONE person, and ONE act of kindness, to inspire others and create change.
That quote illustrates a great way to live and one thing I have discovered in the
creative blogging community, is that they are some of the most
generous and kind people around.
My friend Vicki, over at the 2 Bags Full blog is one of those wonderful
So when I was invited to be a part of her KINDNESS QUILT PROJECT, I was thrilled and honored to participate. An immediate "YES' was my answer.
4 squares - crochet and embellished.
Roughly 6 inches square.
These will be gathered by Vicki, assembled, and gifted to a special person.
What a wonderful way to share our love of creating with others.
I immediately went to work.
Here are the details of the very first square from me.
A luscious, soft, pink cotton yarn. I crocheted in a single stitch basket weave pattern.
(Looks like an Easter basket to me.)
Once I had the base completed, I then set about embellishing.
I have made hundreds of these melty fabric flowers over the years, (here's a HOW TO link if you like) and I had these warm pink fabrics left over from making some for a wedding, so I made one for this block.
( Trying to be stashsourceful, so I made all four blocks from assorted stash materials.)
The flower kind of disappeared against my base, so I crocheted a circle for the "leaves"
I went to the scrap box for a bit of linen and added a bit of cross stitch to this.
That little glass button was gleaned from my "favorites" jar.
I then called this one complete.
Although, Vicki may add more embellishment to it as she assembles the entire quilt.
Again, I am so honored to have been asked about being a contributor to this project.
I'll be back in a few days with the next block.
Have a fabulous weekend.
Life is crazy beautiful
