Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 78

This week I have a lovely block for you called Child's Play. This block is sweet, simple and lots of fun, just like playing with our precious little ones. I first encountered this block when sewing my SBS quilt and its one of those blocks that I just adore, because of its elegance and simplicity.
Children have the most joyous and positive view of the world. For them, there is only love and empathy to be shared with others. Their world has room for everyone to try and succeed, and if someone fails, they are right there picking them up and encouraging them to try again. Children treat everyone the same, regardless of gender, race or religion and they live and play together harmoniously. They don't judge, they don't gossip, they don't feel superior; they encourage, they support, they share. they are accepting and they look at the world with such awe and enthusiasm.
People say children are "adults in training" but I think the adults could learn far more from the actions of a child, than they actually realize.
To me, this block reflects all that is missing in the world we live in today. If only people could live together and see each other, through the heart and eyes of a child........

PS: You may have noticed but I have disabled the Google+ comment function on my blog. I have had numerous issues with this function and everything I did, fixed it for a few posts and then the issues returned. Sadly this decision wiped all of the wonderful comments I have received over the last two years, but it was a sacrifice I had to make to keep connected with you and reply to (and actually see) the amazing feedback you leave. Commenting is now open to everyone, no word verification, no need to jump through hoops to ask a question or just say "hi", and I can keep connected with you all, which is very important to me. Keeping it simple, really is, always the best :)
