Quote Quilt

I am getting there. I think I might be up to 20 spaces filled now? I need to re-count.

I am going to try & double up some weeks …just so I can make a bit more progress on these because I need to fill 96 spaces….and I missed a few months. I really want to have this quilt finished next summer so I can put it in the show.

So this is my latest quote:

001So I know I said I was going to keep everything simple….and not do to much of an embellishments ( as far as embroidery) But in this case I did because this song is so beautiful to me. I listen to it almost every-single-day. Not lying.  ( remember I am one of those that can watch the same movie or listen to the same song 10000 times and never tire of it.)

It’s called “Dream” by Priscella Ahn.

Here are the lyrics so you can read them:


I was a little girl alone in my little world who dreamed of a little home for me.
I played pretend between the trees
, and fed my house guests bark and leaves, and laughed in my pretty bed of green.

I had a dream
I could fly from the highest swing.
I had a dream.

Long walks in the dark through woods grown behind the park, I asked God who I’m supposed to be.
The stars smiled down on me, God answered in silent reverie.
I said a prayer and fell asleep.

I had a dream
I could fly from the highest tree.
I had a dream.
Oooooooooooooooooo (8x)

Now I’m old and feeling grey. I don’t know what’s left to say about this life I’m willing to leave.
I lived it full and I lived it well, there’s many tales I’ve lived to tell. I’m ready now, I’m ready now, I’m ready now to fly from the highest wing

I had a dream

I am in love with the lullabye sound of it……I love the words. I love trees. I love being near trees …what they do for us what they represent & their beauty. I draw trees more than anything else…..and I just thought it seemed appropriate to add that to my quote quilt because it is so personal to me.

I am not a poet or a writer…..I appreciate so much what other people with those gifts can do…..it seems like this song was written for me. I said in the last couple of weeks that I love quotes about dreams ( I discovered that through this process…because it seems so many quotes that mean something have to do with dreaming). I think that is appropriate…honestly. I am guilty of being a dreamer…a day dreamer and a fantasizer. Clearly, it has helped me in my life….:) I was made fun of by my parents when I was younger ( they were pretty harsh about it). I have accepted that it’s a good thing and I am glad that I am.

In the embroidery I used all of the small pieces of brown, gray and black thread that I had…they are all different weights and sizes. I just wanted to use a variety of threads to bring out some definition…..I didn’t want to be locked into one things. I am only using those colors through out my whole quilt….so I wanted to bring them all into this section. 004 005So there is the latest installment of my Quote quilt.

Thanks for following along.
