Melanie quilting full viewmelly new fabs 3Joyful.
Are words that I’d use to describe Meadowlark, Melly Testa’s line by Windham. I’ve been privileged to have gotten my hot little hands on images of the line months ago. Squeeeeee, talk about one of those sneak peeks that just make ya silly happy. I designed a whole series of quilts searching for just the right ones that resonated with Melanie and Windham. It’s a process.
One that I find really exciting It’s kind of like one of those conversations that ya just have to have that is really fun and exciting and intense and joyful and tense amazing all at once. A conversation that just leaves you all breathless and excited. Oh wait, that’s a normal conversation with Melanie.
This is Melanie’s premier line – she’s in the process of designing the next and I hope to be part of that process…I love being behind the scenes.
Hop! Hop! Hop! Check out these blogs to see what Melly’s friends have to say about Meadowlark.
