The shop featured this week at the Etsy Inspired Challenge is called Think Fast Designs, featuring lots of lovely quilts! After seeing Virginia's and Savannah's blog posts, I was inspired to play, and chose this Coin Quilt as my inspiration:
As you might know, I used to be a quilter, but once I discovered card-making I've neglected my quilting badly. So doing a little quilt card like this makes me happy!
Using a 1 1/4 inch square punch, I punched out lots of these patterns from October Afternoon and a few Cosmo Cricket papers, then cut each square in half and pieced them as you see on a piece of white cardstock. To simulate quilting, I then ran the panel through a Sizzix embossing folder, see detail below. To finish, I bordered it in a little green print and added some twine, a heart button and the sentiment. Thanks, EIC, I had a blast making this!
