Typewriters

UPDATED: I totally forgot to say that this quilt was 100% inspired by this Patchwork Love Letters Quilt!
Okay, so it may seem that I'm whipping up quilts in no time flat but in actuality, I just had a lot of works in progress that are all getting finished around the same time.

This one is soooo cool, I LOVE it! Of course, it was pretty hard to use up such a big chunk of the small amount of Melody Miller Typewriters fabric I have but the result is worth it.

I cut 6" squares from this stack of fabrics. The size ended up around 53" by 64" after washing.






















I quilted it in vertical straight lines varying 3/4" to 1.5" apart.















So many fun fabrics were used, I just love the color combo! I wish my pictures were better but it's been so cloudy and windy here lately that it's been tricky.

It is so beautiful! I love that the eye is drawn to the typewriters and also to the pops of colour. Love it.

Love it! Those bright orange pops are great. I have a 1/2 yard of typewriters and I am terrified to use them!
