Let’s sip tea and get comfy
It’s Monday once more. Did you have a good weekend?
Today, I’m drinking my usual tea, this one. Apparently, I think it’s the only tea, because I’m drinking it almost exclusively.
Time to talk fabric! I’ve got a random collection of fabrics for you that I cannot stop starting at.
Somebody said, “hey Melanie, do you think you can make me a quilt with the main color periwinkle?” To which I said, “yah!”
And then as soon as I had created the little bundle I was swooning. I did the thing where I start with a single print and go from there. Although, I actually cheated just a hair. I used several prints from a single Bonnie Christine collection. Learn different methods for creating your own fabric collections here.
Here’s what you are looking at:
- Garden Walk Double Border in thistle
- Blooming Brook in moon
- Aquarelle Study in wash
- Meaning in love
- Stepping Stones in marble
- Season in waltz
- Meadow in posy
- Neverland Star Flower in periwinkle
- Cotton Couture in periwinkle
- Pilou in periwinkle

Here’s the Bonnie Christine fabrics I started with (the unfolded). Seems like I’ve mentioned this collection before, but I don’t remember it being in this lovely periwinkle color. Swoon!
The middle fabric is a Lotta Jansdotter fabric. I haven’t had many of her fabrics in my hands, but I want to.
I’m very much in love with the text print from AGF. Just in case you can’t see it, the bold print says, “to love, v. To regard with the other.” Love!
Also, every time I make a custom collection bundle of fabrics, I keep reaching for this Charleston print by Amy Sinbaldi. It goes with EVERYTHING.
If you haven’t read about the Morning Sun Quilt Along hosted by me (only once a month), you can read the details for that here.
