Hello,

This is the time of year I always think about exploring gardens. I enjoy how plant partitions create garden rooms to be discovered. Each different and all beautiful.

A Quilt as Design

Modern Quilt Blank Card

Fabric shapes, sewn together
Does makes a quilt.
Shapes in a straight line
And some are at a tilt.

Perhaps the most fun of all
The hunt for cute fabric.
Yards are, for the stash
So fantastic!

Although quilts, are often used
To keep you cozy warm,
A quilt is, without a doubt
A stunning art form.

Tulip Fields

Hello,

If you have ever been to a tulip field you know when the sunlight hits the rows of blossoms a feeling of joy can come over you. The bright warm colors mixed with pastels have an uplifting effect on the brain. The light bouncing off many colors all at once creates one of those moments in time to pause.

I found the font “Maris Halftone Medium” on MyFonts.com and I really like it. The font has an uneven outline and whimsical, pinhole texture. The texture does not show at the size I used it here but would be cute if used hundreds of points high on a banner or something. A lot of the letters in Maris have fun flourishes that worked out well for my Happy Birthday design.

Best wishes,
Connie
