Sketch #60

I am not a quilter or much on sewing at all, though every so often I find myself drawn to attempt it, so far I've always managed to talk sense into myself before I get as far as buying materials. I do however love quilts and have seen a lot of card designs based on quilt patterns. It has been one of the items on my list of "things to try" (I've added the paper Twisty Flowers from last week's tutorial to the list) and when I saw this week's sketch it seemed like it was a sign!


It was actually a bit harder than I thought it would be. I thought it would be a matter of a  few punches and some adhesive but I found myself having to trim and adjust along the way. This geometric pattern makes a nice gender neutral card and I will definitely be doing some more of these with patterned papers, other colors and maybe some other quilt patterns too.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Great job on your paper quilt card! Very graphic!!! When you quilt you have to make a few adjustments as well.

This is so pretty Paula! You used my favorite color combination too. I'm a quilter but working with paper these days, it takes a lot less space on the table! :) I haven't attempted this sketch yet, you did a wonderful job with it.

This is a great idea! I've done this kind of thing with kids, but I've never done it for a card! I really like the way your card looks! I'm a wannabe quilter, but no time! Paper is quicker for me! Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a quilt to me, Paula! And I love the Americana feel. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
