"R" for Julie

As soon as I sewed up this "R" I knew I couldn't keep it secret from Julie.

I knew I wanted to use this fabric, but I wasn't quite sure how. As I moved it around, I thought I could take advantage of one of the curlicues for the descender in the letter "R". So I sewed it up that way, and as I was working, the solution for how the rest of the letter would be constructed revealed itself.


For anybody who knows how much I love to watch Tennis, the answer is "Yes," I was watching the marathon match at Wimbledon between American John Isner and the Frenchman, Nicolas Mahut. And I'll continue to watch later today when they resume playing.

Beautiful "R" - you are giving me the courage to start my letter project that I've been procrastinating on.

Yes, awesome tennis! I hope the winner has something left for the next round!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

I'm really interested in your work, you use patchwork in a whole new way to what I've seen before. I'm currently venturing in to the world of quilts, just hope one day I can reach the same standards as you. Keep up the good work.

That is a beautiful R! I love how you used the fabric to really enhance the has the feel of an illuminated manuscript.

Awesome work you're doing on Julie's quilt. I can't wait to see the whole thing!
