Today I received the most beautiful mini quilt from my friend Jen of mj & co.
I met Jen through Instagram, and got to know her when I offered to help her pretty up her blog a bit.  In return, she offered to make a mini for me to hang in my sewing room!  I made the most random mosaic of inspiration ever, and somehow she translated my love of scrappy improv, wonky stars, Melody Miller typewriters, and Good Folks into this gorgeous work of art!
Oh yes, and we can't forget the straight line quilting!  I also love the text prints thrown in there!
Jen labeled the back using this cute notebook fabric.
And did a little FMQ outline around the details of the typewriter!  I just love that heart!
This has already made it's way up onto the wall, and it makes me smile every time I look in that direction!
I am so grateful for all the work Jen put into this mini quilt for me!  It is absoultely perfect.  And did I mention how great it is that we can find new friendships in something like Instagram?  Love that!  Thank you Jen for making my day today!!
