I so love quilting. I have fond memories of my grandmother’s quilts. I keep thinking at some point, I will pick up the hobby. I have a few hurdles….one I look at my paper wall and think how much that would cost in fabric! Two, I am doing good to sew buttons on or a simple stitch on a card…let alone a whole quilt! So for now, I quilt with my paper! I created a set of twenty of these cards for a local fundraiser. By the time, I finished…I was thinking maybe I should have done a quilt! I am not certain that fabric squares would take much longer than my paper squares! I finished out the inside as well.
My card was created with mostly retired products. I so loved the Pear & Partridge Collection by Close To My Heart, that I had saved all my little scraps. I turned those scraps into these cards! After finishing the quilt blocks, I felt the cards needed a little bit more. I cut out some snowflakes with the Cricut Artiste Collection and added them to the top of the quilts. Fingers crossed, that they bring in a nice donation for the family in need.
