When I saw this block and story in my Instagram feed today, I couldn’t wait to make this block! Designed by May Chappell, this free block tutorial on her blog aims to spread kindness and love.
She says: “Lately I’ve been feeling as though there’s a lot of negativity going around, from the election to world affairs to right here in our own quilting community. I decided to create a block called Love All Around. It’s all about coming from a place of love and kindness. Quilting brings me joy and I love sharing that with all of you!”
May is planning on making a block every time she sees kindness in her community, which is a beautiful idea for a quilt. I think I’ll finish mine as a mini to hang in my home. I hope that every time I walk by it I’m reminded to show love and kindness to everyone I meet!
I chose two cute heart prints from Timeless Treasures and scraps of pink, yellow, and gray. I love this color combo and it’s so bright and happy –perfect for spreading cheer to all those who see it!
Visit May’s blog to get the free pattern, see other bloggers who are making this block, and to read more of the lovely story behind this idea!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
If you make this block, tag it on Instagram with #loveallaroundblock to share the love!
