Florabunda! Melanie Testa, RJR a bit of magic

Several years ago Melanie, Elizabeth Rosenberg and I met for lunch. We ended up laughing so hard and so much that we annoyed the family at the next table. Which was hilarious in and of itself, and only got us laughing more. Florabunda!, Melanie's first line with RJR Fabrics #quiltwithlove, is all of what is… Continue reading Florabunda!

We get by with a little help from our friends

A friend moved over the weekend. And I helped. Oh if only my brain could recall the commercial where the kid says, "And I helped"! She's a bit further away, but closer to another friend of ours.

Character Builder: Enjoying my Work

Every time I look at this piece of dupioni I see a dancer, depending on the distance sometimes there are two. Human imagination allows us to look at what is there, see something vastly different that what is intended, and develop our sense of play. This piece started with the feather motif in the middle,… Continue reading Character Builder: Enjoying my Work

Character: explored beauty

Melanie Testa is by far one of the most joyful, and thoughtful quilters I've ever met. A beautiful, creative soul. One of my most treasured memories is having lunch with her and Elizabeth, we were on the receiving end of some seriously disapproving looks from because we were laughing so much. This still brings a… Continue reading Character: explored beauty
