Make your own melody in 2022!
The Melody Quiltalong has closed. Check out the Dreamlines Project, my free monthly art project for 2023.
In 2022, I offered my newsletter subscribers a free PDF pattern for my power-stripping project Melody 33 which uses 33 selvedge-to-selvedge 2 1/2in strips. Ideal for jelly rolls and stash-busting.
For too long, things have been sitting idle and out of sight: quilts, fabric, patterns and more. It’s time to release them out into the world. This is my gift to you and a gift to myself.
I first made this piano key inspired quilt back in 2010 as part of my “power-stripping” series of designs. Recently I wrapped up Melody 33 with a bow and dispatched it to the other “other” Copacabana – the one in Rio de Janiero where there is a lively 18-month old Cecilia who will get to enjoy it. So much better than having it folded up in a cupboard.
Of course, I have lots more fabric in my stash so I have started a new melody. I invite you to quilt-along with me. Reacquaint yourself with those precious fabrics and start power-stripping!
