Bloom where you are planted

My son-in-law is in graduate school in another state.  That means my daughter and adorable grandson are also in another state.  When they first moved there, I only thought about how hard it was FOR ME that we aren't close; but it is also hard for her.  Being away from family and being a new mother can be a struggle.  She loves the saying "Bloom Where You Are Planted" so I put it into this little wall hanging.

I need help to find this pattern...

Hello quilt sisters,

My amazing mother-in-law just passed away and my father-in-law passed last fall.  They were married 66 years and were always so very wonderful to me.

One of the pictures we used in the video has them in front of one of the first quilts I made.  I have no idea where this quilt ended up (I probably gave it away) but I REALLY REALLY want to make it again.  The scripture in the middle is 2 Timothy 1:7. 
 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

I've done a few searches online and can't seem to find the pattern.  PLEASE HELP.   Comment below if you know where I could find this pattern.  Thanks much!
