love letters

Thank you so much for the nice comments on my January flowers quilt! There were a few questions about the wavy quilting lines – if you want to try something similar, I’m happy to say that it was pretty easy! I used my walking foot and just gently moved the quilt from side to side while sewing. You’ll notice that some of my lines don’t go all the way across the quilt – periodically I’d stop sewing in the middle of a line, put the needle down, turn the quilt and continue sewing back in the other direction. Hope this helps – let me know if there are other questions!

And now, speaking of Melody Miller, and her gorgeous new Ruby Star Shining line… one of the prints I was immediately drawn to is the typewriter print. I love them in all three colorways, and have spent a bit of time pulling out fabrics to pair with them.

The typewriters are wonderful for fussy cutting. If you decide to do so, you can cut them into approximately 6″ squares without losing any surrounding typewriters. You can bet that there will be at least one patchwork square quilt in my future (it would be silly not to, right?!)

I’m not yet sure what these will all become, but it’s been fun pulling out fabrics and making stacks!

Now, which one to start with first?!
