Benartex Fabric By Cherry Guidry "Words To Live By"

It's been a very busy quilting and blog hopping week for me!
Today I'm sharing "Words To Live By" for Benartex, but if you're 
looking for the Welcome To My House blog hop you can find it HERE.

Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio is one of my favorite fabric designers.
I've known Cherry for several years because of blog hops we were both involved in and it's been a
pleasure to watch her grow into such an incredible designer. Her fabric designs and quilting are  amazing, so I was very excited when Benartex asked me to sew something with her fabric for a hop.


All You Need Is Love
Finished quilt is 42" x 48"


I know you can hear the Beatles singing "All You Need Is Love" in your head right now.
It's one of my favorite songs!
"All you need is love. Love is all you need."

Cherry's newest fabric, "Words to Live By", includes panels with different sayings to live
by...love, joy, and happiness. Things we all need in our lives! I used three of the word sayings
from the love panel. The other panels are pretty and awesome, too!




Adding the applique flower was a breeze because I used my favorite iron-on adhesive,
Therm O Web's Heat n Bond Lite. The protective paper peels right off...no scoring with a pin.




The fabric I used for the All You Need Is Love quilt top:

1/2 yard - Tiny Words Turquoise
1/2 yard - Happy Medallion Yellow
1/2 yard - Keys Turquoise
1/2 yard - Daisy Grey
1 yard - Modern Lace White
1 yard - Happy Medallion Grey 
1 – Panel - Love Panel Grey/Multi (I used three of the sayings)




You can find the pattern for All You Need Is Love in my Craftsy pattern store HERE.
