Left: TFiOS Clouds, 7″ Hand Embroidery or Applique
Right: TFiOS Clouds, 8″ Paper Pieced
While organizing the #TFiOS Design Challenge over on Fandom In Stitches, I could not resist designing a couple of patterns myself.
The Fault in Our Stars has been one of my favorite books since the first time it was placed into my hot little hands.
As well as being a beautifully written, it is also an extremely quotable book. With that in mind, I created two versions of the same image, both just waiting for Your Words Here.
The design on the above left will work either for applique or for hand embroidery.
The design on the above right is paper pieced, but will also work just fine if you’d like to embroider the clouds after piecing.
And now, a couple of my favorite quotes, grabbed from GoodReads.
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
“Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said.
“Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.”
“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
“You are so busy being YOU that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
I know, right?
