This blog post is for you, my loyal customers, newsletter subscribers and social media followers.
As you are aware, life got interrupted earlier this year when I was hospitalized for 12 days with Covid.
It was a period of uncertainty, uneasiness and unknowns but through it all I was calmed and at ease learning of the many prayer warriors that had engaged their teams and communities to pray for me and my recovery.
I was humbled to say the least but I want you to know I truly felt the overwhelming power that prayer has wash over me. It was comforting, encouraging and carried me when times became a bit more unpredictable.
I am a true and firm believer in prayer and positive thoughts and the impact they have on a person and/or situation. Thank you for your prayers, your thoughts, your well wishes and genuine care and concern for my recovery! Without you, I know things could have been much different.
To celebrate my heartfelt thankfulness to YOU, "With All My Heart" pattern is FREE to you and anyone else you want to share it with for ONE WEEK from Friday, 10/15 through Friday,10/22/21. On Saturday, 10/23/21 it will become a downloadable PDF for $10.00.
Being a quilter and speaking to a community of quilters, I could NOT think of a better design than hearts to help convey my gratitude.
As you can see, some of the hearts are upright, some are down and the very special patchwork hearts (which represent YOU) are scattered throughout.
My dear quilting friend, Diane Merritt @storyofaquiltdesigns, sewed this beauty for me while I recovered; and Penny Barnes @pbandjquiltstudio put the "exquisite" finishing touches on with her long arm quilting skills.
Diane didn't stop with this design but was able to create an additional design from the trimmed corners from the bottom of the hearts that I'll be sharing with you next week. You will NOT be disappointed.
From me to you, THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart!
