Welcome to the “Spell it with Fabric” blog hop!
I look forward to share the letter “L” with you and a few things that I love.
I was assigned the letter “L” for Laundry Basket Quilts. I am super excited about it, not only because “L” is an easy letter to piece, but also because “L” is for “Love” and there is no doubt that I love what I do!
Through travels I can see patient and generous ”Love” in others that create with threads.
… and women express themselves in fibers. There are no borders or boundaries for creativity, our inner soul spills into our project and delivers an outward expression of ourselves.
I experienced this with my letter “L”, as soon as finished piecing my block, I wanted to leave my “fingerprint” on it.
I used some “Jellybean” Silhouettes for the applique to make it mine.
Jellybean batiks are so beautiful, I took a blue strip from the jelly roll and made another letter. Since “L” is also for leaves I couldn’t help but imagine how beautiful this fall “L” could be.
I wanted to make one after another, this ”L” is using some of the “Jellybean” colors
I tell you, I was having so much fun it was “crazy”.
No matter what I did with the letter, even making it small enough to fit in my hand, there was no stopping!
With some small adjustments, I even made some companions for my “L” to fit in a little quilt.
I realized that part of the “Love” that I was feeling was fueled by the range of colors that I was showered with in the “Jellybean” fabric collection.
Colors that inspire us in unexpected places to create.
“Jellybean” fabric collection is a wonderful combination of printed fabric and batiks. It will be arriving in quilt shops April 2014 and I hope that it will inspire you!
