Welcome to a wonderful blog hop celebrating Melanie Testa’s first line of fabric for Windham
I already wrote about the sweet little table runner I made as part of Melanie’s sample team. She needed to fill a booth quickly with projects made from her line of fabric. How lucky are we to be able to play with her fabric!? I also put together a little set of nesting boxes in which she could hold things for display.
And here is the biggest – using a leftover bit from the table runner.
And here is a picture of the crazy abundance of beauty that was just one small bit of Melly’s booth at the Quilt Market trade show!
(The picture is Melly’s – go check out her Market videos – in a minute!)
Off they all went for display and as is the usual in my schedule, off I went to another teaching gig. Only THIS time I did something that I haven’t done in years. Started a project for the trip the night before I left. I’ll write all about that next week when I announce the winner of the following giveaway. Believe me – it’s a funny story! Here is a peek at the project and yes, I couldn’t help myself. I had to “play photos” first and run it through a couple of apps to make it all funky looking. I’ll post big clear pictures next Monday June 15th.
One of you lucky blog readers is going to have the chance to win a fat pack of the entire collection – that’s 26 10″ pieces!
