On with the post. . .
A couple of weeks ago, Splitcoast Stampers had their weekly project. It was a quilt card. I'm not a quilter, but the lady across the street who always looks after us (last big snow she called and said she had an extra rotisserie chicken in case we needed it!) is a great sewer and has a beautiful quilt hanging in one of the rooms in her house. So, I decided that was reason enough to make her a note card set. Here are the pics:
I thought that these would be difficult, but they were pretty easy once you got a system going. To make the patterns easier to place, I cut a square the size of the finished "quilt" (4" X 4"). I then covered the square in a tight grid of strong tape. Once that was ready, I slid the square into the left hand corner of my Score Pal. Then starting at the top, placed each piece based on the pattern I was following. If you go to the quilt card tutorial HERE, they supply you with a website with tons of different quilt patterns. I really had a blast making these though it got tedious by the box lid quilt! LOL My neck was getting stiff. All the squares are 1". Since this is a "note card" set, I did not use sentiments, plus I didn't want sentiments to detract from the pattern. Hope you enjoyed these and try one or two.
I have just a couple other quick cards I wanted to share. . .
The last card was a combo attempt at "clean and simple" and a "man" card. . .
OK, that's it for another Wednesday post. Still working on organizing some fun new changes that are coming for my blog. I want to keep it fresh and fun for you so you keep coming back. I want it to be fun and interesting and hopefully I've shared something that inspires you or I've shown you a new technique that you would like to try. Whatever the case, I just want it to be worth your valuable time to come here.
PIC OF THE WEEK
Love you guys!
