You’ve got… “Happy Mail!”  LOL

Well– it *is* happy.  And it’s the best kind of mail you can share–an encouragement in the form of a pretty, sweet collage quilt!

And the envelope is a three-dimensional ‘trapunto’ technique with instructions included in the pattern. The size of quilt seen in the cover photo finishes to about 18″ x 26.”  BUT–it also includes 13×20 and 8×10 sizes as well!!

This pretty design is a great way to try out collage, fusible style!  The technique is fusible, raw edge appliqué, utilizing Steam A Seam Lite 2–  a ‘peel and stick’ kind of fun experience!  You will add Steam a Seam Lite 2 and fuse to floral fabrics, as well as for the envelope and heart.  It’s easy-peasy, and super fun!  After the flowers are cut, you’ll have a blast putting this beautiful bouquet together!

I enjoyed adding a small stipple free motion quilting stitch around the perimeter of the bouquet and envelope, and then added different sizes of quilted daisies in the background quilting, surrounding each of those motifs with a small stipple, so they would stand out!

Pattern includes illustrative photos with step by step instructions, including a full size drawing, and quilting suggestions and techniques and a complete supply list.

Ohoooo — and KITS are available in the Marveles Art Studios shop!  They feature the fourteen original florals, plus the text words, and sweet little bees.  All of which was used as inspiration for the color style of this beautiful wall hanging with all the background and binding fabrics.  See them here!
