what's love got to do with it.  in 2012 for some reason i only made three quilts.  one of them was a portrait quilts, where the couple decide they didn't want it because it was to close to the holiday.  so i did not finish it,  two were baby quilts and i have no pictures of them.  there were many times i have tried to do a portrait, i  just did not like the look of the portrait quilt.  so the next best thing i did,  to keep my hands busy was to knit.  something that i was doing before i started quilting.  there were mini workshops that i did make little quilts, but no pictures. 
well a couple of days ago my friend marlene called to ask for my open about how to do a quilt. the quilt was paper piecing.  i hate paper piecing.  i always waste fabric. i was trying to tell marlene how to do it.  she had done paper piecing before but for some reason it was just not coming back to her right now. the next thing i know i am doing the quilt piece by piece and sending her pictures and talking to her on the phone about how i did it.  marlene sent me a picture of how her piece is looking and i love it.  it is so different from mine and that is what i love about it.  i kind of like making letter paper piecing.  i want to make a a paper piece that says LOVE NOT WAR.  
i want to thank marlene for getting my creative juices going.

Hello Yetunde -- it's been a while since I've seen you (in blog or in person). I LOVE that LOVE quilt! Is it her own design?
I hope to see you soon -- Piece!

Serendipity strikes. One of the small groups of or Piecemaker's guild is making a quilt for the NAACP youth raffle with the love pattern. It is paperpieced too, although there is another one very similar in a recent QUILT LIFE mag. that is not paper pieced and much easier to construct.
