I have been looking at a lot of quilts & quilting patterns lately, in preparation for a new project I'm launching at this year's Stationery Show. (Stay tuned for more on that!) I've always loved the way the quilt pattern repeats itself with those subtle variations that result only in something handmade.

I recently hand-lettered a friend's birthday menu. To find out what style of lettering she wanted, I wrote out the same cheese name & description in different styles and found the result to be that same lovely repetition-plus-variation I'm drawn to in quilts.

Cheese and quilts - who knew?
