A new challenge starts today at
This time around our hostess is Terri and she has chosen
'Warm Thoughts' for our theme.
Terri wants us to create something that would keep us 'warm'.
Initially I thought of using some of my coffee stamps,
but then remembered some time back I had
created a 'country pinwheel' quilt card
and decided to do another.
In my previous sewing years, I had a ton of quilt books and patterns.
I downsized my crafting supplies several years ago when I started
making paper crafts more then sewing crafts,
but I kept a Better Homes and Gardens 100 quilt patterns book.
I thought at the time it would be perfect to use those quilt designs for cards.
If you look closely, you can see how the pattern was made,
and really quite simple.
Just punch out 16 one inch squares, cut on the angle,
then it's just all about placement..
I chose the warm and cozy colors of red and a hot pink (pun intended...lol)
nothing cozier and warm, then a nice quilt!
I added buttons, ribbon and a button embossed strip at the bottom.
I also 'quilted' my quit with an EB folder.
Now it's your turn...head on over to The Sisterhood to see
what my 'sistah's' have to inspire you!
Papers ....SU Pink Passion, Doodlebug Designs Sweetcakes
Ribbon .... Really Reasonable Ribbon
