This block was so much fun to make! I really like the way the sweet little bow turned out in the upper left-hand corner of the heart. The use of buttons as flowers, buds, or fruit along a vine has always been a go to technique for me. Over the years I have amassed a great collection of both vintage and contemporary buttons. I enjoy finding creative ways to use them in my art quilts. Anytime I Stitch or applique a vine pattern I am reminded of these verses in the Gospel of John. The vine is a good example for us; just as the leaves cannot survive and flourish without the vine itself we cannot survive and flourish without our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be My disciples.”
John 15:5-8 HCSB
Happy stitching I hope you are inspired to be creative today!
