Love All Around

About a week ago, my friend Lee from May Chapelle sent out a call to action—she wanted all of us to help her bring some love and positivity to the world on January 20. The idea is that she’s going to make this block—the Love All Around block—every time she sees an act of kindness in her community in 2017. She’s hoping to end the year with a gigantic, epic quilt.

I can’t think of a better way to spend this particular day than talking about an idea like Lee’s. There’s so much negativity in the world right now. Anger, defensiveness, and self-absorption are rampant—and I’m not talking just about the political arena. It’s everywhere right now, in all walks of life. There are a lot of ways I’m hoping to help change the world in 2017, but this block is a pretty great place to start, don’t you think?

Want to make your own? Head over to Lee’s blog for a complete tutorial for making this block. And check IG for lots of other versions of this block, made by many of your other favorite bloggers! Let’s bring the love today!

    Thank you so such for sharing this. The world really does need more love so I think I might make some quilts using this block to give away to others that might need a little love in their lives. I love the idea of making a block overtime I see an act of kindness in my community too.

    I am sorry that you have this view of the world. While there are some issues I still look out my window and feel and see so many amazing things that I am so very grateful for. Hope you feel more encouraged tomorrow:)
