Sunshine Quilt

Here is my card for this week's Lily Pad Cards challenge.  I'm afraid that I didn't follow Lucy's sketch very well - the only thing that translated from it was the stars!  I think Miss Lucy would give me a failing grade on following directions..... Here is her sketch:

Each of the DT members got a beautiful set of The Craft's Meow stamps.  I received this set called "Baggin' Some Rays".  I LOVE it, thanks, Lisa!  After playing around a bit, I decided to use just 2 of the 5 variations of this star/sun and make a quilt.  I love the secondary pattern that results. Here is my first version:


But it was kind of plain to me, so I added some more coordinating centers to the stars and here is my final result:


supplies: gold card base, design papers from Jenni Bowlin "Naptime" (background) and October Afternoon "The Thrift Shop" and "Fly a Kite" (star centers), The Craft's Meow "Baggin' Some Rays", versafine onyx black ink


Be sure and visit the DT's blogs to see what they did with other The Craft's Meow sets: Alice, Deborah, LatriceNancy, Pia, SarahSuzanne, and Vicky.  And then please come play along with us - there's a Craft's Meow set of stamps up for grabs!

  10. I can tell you were a quilter Lin, as this is a classic quilting design, I cannot remember the name of it though. (I think I made a quilt with square centres.) I like the first version as it is not so busy but your second version is quite beautiful too.
