Altenew January Inspiration

When I saw Norine's beautiful photo taken at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and used as our inspiration for this month's challenge at Altenew, I couldn't resist giving it a try.  My mind went instantly to my big Peony Dream dies, and literal Lin came up with this:


supplies: black, pine green, Orange Peel, Sunshine, and Lipstick Red card, Altenew Peony Dream flower dies and sentiment die from Flower Arrangement die set, Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die

Here's our inspiration:

Lin, your card is gorgeous. You've really made those colors pop. I just got this die in the mail this week and it's been confounding me. I'll keep this page so that I can see the layers better, they seem to be mixed up on the packaging guide.

Wow, Lin, this is gorgeous! I absolutely love your take on the inspiration challenge. It's a stunning "Lin" card and one that is close to my heart when you said it was from a quilt seen at the International Quilt Festival. My best friend and I were blessed to attend it twice and help man a booth for a vendor whom we met at a sewing convention here in South Florida. We had so much fun and bought so many wonderful things. But now I no longer quilt and just stamp. But it's wonderful to that that gorgeous quilt in the inspiration challenge image. You nailed it! Warm hugs and love! xoxo
