So this is the second block for my quote quilt. I finished it last weekend. I just loved the quote so much I wanted to see it finished.
In my rush and not thinking properly I forgot to put batting on teh back of my last 2 blocks. I am not concerned about it because….well I am easy going like that. But I will show a side by side difference of what they look like..so it actually worked in my favor. I will do that next week to show you how the batting makes the block look a bit different.
So I had this dream to become an artist as a child. I can remember significant instances in my life when I was drawing, coloring or doodling and something good or bad was happening at the time….I can remember getting recognition for my talent when I didn’t realize it was a talent. I could only see my faults or flaws. I write quite often of my experiences…how far I have come in life. I am a walking miracle…..I Absolutley-unequivocally know that dreams do come true. I always say that I had a dream for myself but God had a bigger one. I couldn’t have dreamed this life for myself. I am blessed beyond measure…..the quotes just keeping rolling off of my head..I can’t help myself. 🙂
So when I saw this quote…..it spoke Volumes to me.
This is so true. I think we have to have BIG Scary dreams…other wise they aren’t dreams they are just goals. Goals are good don’t get me wrong…but if I am going to dream I want it to be so big- fabulous-scary so that when it comes true I will be on cloud 9…dancing in the sun….basking in the true blessing that it is. I never want to take that for granted. That’s how I feel everyday in my life with my job and my family. I didn’t know what it was like to really love a man. A good man. One that loves and cherishes me, protects me and cheers me on in everything I do. I am a good mom with healthy kids. I get to partake in art everyday. Yes…..I am loved. BIG DREAMS are good for you.
So I used a couple different colors of gray thread. On the small words I used 3 strands of DMC floss ……on the big words I used all 6 strands. I wanted it to look BIG & Chunky. I wanted to it stand out a bit more. I of course had to change needles to do that as well.
If you want the PDf for this quote just email me..and I will send it to you.
I am already working on my next block. SO fun!
