Papertake "In Stitches" challenge


The challenge this week at Papertake is to do anything involving stitching.  So I'm posting one of my little quilts - this uses real stitching on the quilt seams and doodled stitching just outside the edge of the quilt.  After it's all constructed, I emboss it using an embossing folder.   I thought the sentiment was perfect.

Supplies: HA CL406 Buttons, CL342 Everyday Sayings, various printed papers, pink and white cardstock, clear ink and white embossing powder (button), black ink, white gel pen, sewing machine and white thread for zig-zag stitching, pearls, Sizzix flowers embossing folder
