Dear Son – Chapter 5

  • by

Hello everyone!

Today I’m sharing Chapter 5 of the Dear Son quilt, which makes up the top two rows of my center section…

As I mentioned last month I am pulling a couple lyrics from the song Into the Mystic, by Van Morrison, because it’s a special song for me and ‘the boy’ lol. As the song goes… Smell the sea and feel the sky, let your soul and spirit fly – into the mystic…

The message I’m sending out is to connect with nature and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

Use these words, or switch them up if you like. You can use the full alphabet provided or any of the text so far from previous chapters to fill the space…

This month, I cut out my text just outside the template lines to add a tiny bit of extra width…
And as usual I cut my background 1/2″ larger in both directions to allow for shrinkage from all the stitching.

When you place your letters, be sure they are centered within your finished size requirements (6″ x 24″).

I hope you enjoy this Chapter… go to your happy place, stay in and sew… it’s the best therapy :)

happy sewing, Sherri
