There are a lot of ways that you can develop a spiritual ethical will. You can write a comprehensive ethical will that includes your last will and trust, you can write ethical letters to special people in your life or you can be a little more creative. If you want to translate your ethical will into an heirloom, then consider creating an ethical will quilt.
To start with you will want to write passages for your ethical will quilt. These passages can be directed to specific people, or to humanity in general. Each passage is going to make up a square so try to keep them brief. After drafting your passages edit them and perfect them, as once they are applied to the design of your quilt you won’t be able to change them.
When you have your passages ready your next step is to design your quilt. You have a couple of options when it comes to applying your passages to your quilt squares. First of all, if you know how to needlepoint, then you can embroider the passages on your squares. If you don’t know how to do needlepoint, then I would recommend that you buy a printer transfer kit. You can then print out a color transfer of your passages and then simply iron on the passage to your square.
The final step is to assemble your quilt. You will first need to sew together your squares. Next you will cut out a backing for your quilt. Finally, assemble your quilt by sewing the front panel, stuffing layer and back panel together and finishing with trim.
