Love You More – Addendum to my Celebrate Easter Quilt Banner

Love You More - Celebrate Easter Salutation No. 2

Love You More

My Celebrate Easter quilt banner turned out so beautiful I decided I must sew it again. Only I don’t need another Easter design of the same. After giving it some thought I decided I would add a different message and this time would not make a hanging quilt with it.

It took me a few days and some talking about it with friends but finally I decided to put “Love You More” in the oval space. For my project I decided to make a pillow with it  – layout undetermined at this time.

Love You More

I’ve added this message to the collection Celebrate Easter.

If you have already purchased this collection the addendum lettering has already been added to your account. You can log in and download it at your convenience.
