Hope Mini Quilt Isn’t this mini quilt stitched by Jeni Baker gorgeous? It’s made from a free quilt pattern on the Denyse Schmidt site – get the free pattern.

On days like these, I think of hope. Hope is similar to crafting – it’s something you create out of a patchwork of things. You can take what is cast off and make it useful again – you can take what is negative and give it a new form – you can take something lifeless and breathe life into it.

When we create something with our hands, we’re saying that the world is valuable – that life is worth sticking around for the next day, and the next day, and the day after that.


We make meaning and transcend time and space in everything we create. I’d like to think that we, as crafters use every thread we’re given to create. And in every new creation, whatever it’s made out of, there is hope.

This free cross-stitch pattern is designed by Comastitch, and is available on Craftsy – it reminds me of needlepoint, with its bold, blocky letters and coloring.


And lastly, this free Primitive blessing pattern on Twigs n Sprigs looks simple and sweet, and echoes so many of the words being circulated around the internet right now.

Wherever you find yourself this day, I hope this post, our threads, and the crafts we make together bring you life, light, and above all, hope.

    Thank you for such a lovely pattern.Will be adding this to my quilt squares on some percal material I found in Mexico at $1.25 a yard so I bought the whole bolt for $22.00 not realizing it was 70″ wide times 30 yards so I guess I have enough for awhile.What beautiful material they have at great prices. Thanks,PR
