And you thought I was finished........

........with my quilt cards for the Cozy Quilt challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

I evidently miss my quilting days, as I have embraced this challenge.  I haven't done an all-stamped card yet, so here's one, using a complementary color scheme.

Curtain Call

supplies: Hero Arts Mandarin and Tide Pool layering papers, Wplus9 Quilt Prints, Blanket Stitched Blooms, 
Adirondack Sunset Orange and Hero Arts Tide Pool inks, a Hero Arts/Archiver's sentiment, and lots of pearls.

This one was inspired by a Pinterest photograph that I have had on my boards for quite awhile.  The pattern of pointy edges is called Prairie Points, and is usually used on the edges of a quilt, making kind of a ruffle all around the border of it.

Prairie Points

These papers are from various places: BoBunny dots, an old blue gingham that I've had forever, and the florals and the sentiment are from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh pad.  The red ric-rac is from my sewing basket.

Thanks for visiting me today!

  5. I've really enjoyed seeing all your quilting cards, Lin. I've been thinking of getting back to quilting lately and I might try a card like this to get me going!

  6. The best thing about making quilt cards is that you could actually make several in a day. Not so with making quilts. These patterns would take many hours of planning, cutting, stitching and then quilting to produce even one! Love these cards, especially the first one!
