In July 2019, I completed my LOVE Quilt and submitted it to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza, which was held in September 2019 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. The quilt says “LOVE” in Morse Code.

Here’s the backstory on me working with Morse Code. In November 2018, I was interested in taking a full-day class at a local quilt shop to make a Morse Code quilt. I did not take the class because I took a two-day embroidery class the same weekend at a different local quilt shop. In the summer of 2019, I wondered whether the Morse Code quilt class would be offered again. When I did not see the class offered, I decided to print the Morse Code alphabet and create my own technique.

After the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza ended, I was inspired to make quilts for the words FAITH and HOPE. I planned to create a quilt series and call it the I Corinthians 13 Quilt Series.

  • “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
    ‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Here is the I Corinthians 13 Quilt Series:
