I really enjoyed making all the 'LOVE's and decided that I wanted the letters to be the focal point, so hand quilted just inside each letter to make them all stand out. I nearly didn't give it a border at all, but am very glad I did, as this plain pink border throws the attention back onto the letters, which is what I wanted.
I machine quilted the border in a toning thread with 'love' repeated over and over. It adds texture to the border without pulling attention away from the letters.
I have decided to call it, 'But the greatest of them all is love', a quote from I Corinthians 13 v13. I'm not religious myself, but the Bible is a rich source of wisdom, and that quote sums it all up for me. I have to do the label and sleeve, and then it will go off to a charity exhibition at The Bramble Patch in June.
Many thanks, Tonya for giving me this opportunity to do something different and so satisfying!
