A Patchwork Life

So, you know that I make quilts.

Jacob and I believe that our lives are a patchwork of all of the people who have surrounded us throughout our lives.

To symbolize that these influences will now become something new as Jacob and I create a family together, I'd like to put that patchwork of people together in a quilt.

Would you consider creating a 6 inch by 6 inch square of fabric to contribute to our quilt? It can be just one piece of fabric or it can be a quilt block of two or more fabrics joined together in a pattern. The pattern can be as simple as this:
or this:
As long as it is a 6 inch square when you're done, we will love it, even if it is all crazy, with crooked seams and oddly-shaped pieces.

If everyone could use green fabrics, we'll get a very cool-looking quilt.

We'd love to get a quilt block from everyone that will be participating in our wedding, whether you are simply sending us good wishes or attending the ceremony.

Completed quilt blocks can be sent to our house. If you need the address or you have any questions, email Rebecca at rebica [at] aol [dot] com.

Some of you will be moving outside of your creative comfort zone to make this gift for us. Please believe that we will love whatever you create. Like the song says, "Don't worry 'bout it's not good enough for anyone else to hear. Just sing, sing a song."

Luh la la luh la la. Luh la la luh la la. La la luh la luh la la.

Luh la la luh la la. Luh la la luh la la. La la luh la luh la la.

Thank you.
