Play date part 2

melly new fabs 5Melly new fabs 2Melly new fabsI must admit that whenever I get my hot little hands on Melanie’s printed cloth I go all giddy. Last July Melly gave me some of her printed cloth and I made a quilt that has yet to be quilted.

Melly New fabs 4There is something different in Melanie’s work now. The colors are richer, somehow more joyful and speak who I know of Melanie to me. It’s vibrant and joyful. Not that the cloth wasn’t before, it was, it’s just richer, deeper, clearer.
There were originally 6 pieces of cloth, I gave one away to someone who’s been very encouraging over the last few months and has had a few struggles herself. I can say that it brought a smile to her face!  Mission. Accomplished.
melly new fabs 3I am looking forward to making something beautiful with this. I have a project in mind for a demonstration I’m doing in about 6 weeks.

Happy Quilting!

  1. You are so right about how Melly’s cloth reflects her personality! I knew there was something that set her cloth apart from the masses, and you nailed it! Although I haven’t seen it up close and personal, the motifs, color combos, and design just say Melly to me. Her joy-filled personality shines through. Looking forward to seeing what you create and getting my hands on Melly’s new fabric line!!! Soon, we all will be creating Melly cloth quilts and I am so excited!

  2. Love that second piece!!! Kinda reminds me of the old metal “jacks” I used to play with on hot summer days. Inspiration fuel for sure!!!!!
