something borrowed...

Rossie's Painted Pebbles tutorial + Avenir Black Bold =

When I think about weddings, one of the first things that comes to mind is the crisp simplicity of letter-pressed invitations, announcing the wondrous news to loved ones near and far.  ...And we didn't even have letter-pressed invites ;)

Nonetheless, I could think of no better way to tip my hat to that sentiment than to add a typographic element to this Double Wedding Ring quilt using a slightly modified version of the-one-and-only Rossie's reverse appliqué method:

…To be continued! ;)

(P.S.  Rossie has a tip jar in case you, too, find yourself inspired by her creativity.)


  1. my jaws are dropping already :-)

  2. You tease!! I can't wait to see this!

  3. I love reverse appliqué! I already know this quilt is going to go on my favs list!

    And to answer a question (my kids deleted my email folder, sorry it's taken me so long), my mac just automatically created the second user when I transferred everything over. No software needed. I don't know if that's a new feature, but it's been great. It even used my previous image for my profile and everything!

  4. Oooh this looks very interesting! Love the concept - can't wait to see it realised.

  5. Definitely hooked. I want to see what happens next!
