Patches and Quilt Squares

October 23, 2009 at 12:20 am Leave a comment

Lately I’ve seen alot of cards using quilt-type squares, or patchwork and many of them include sewing.  I’m always impressed when I see sewing done on cards because I can’t sew to save my life!    I wouldn’t even know how to thread the needle on my sewing machine…..where is my sewing machine anyway???

patch quilt challenge final

Materials: Stamps: Flourishes Sweet Violets (sentiment); Paper: Cosmo Cricket (dp) SU - red, Flourishes - ivory; Ink: Palette L'Amore red; Other: ribbon, scallop punch

This card takes the patch/quilt square concept – but without the sewing!  All the designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  I took the bird patterened paper and just punched out squares around the design, then took a slightly larger scalloped punch and punched out red squares.  Everything was mounted on more Cosmo Cricket paper.  The sentiment, which is the only stamped section of the card, is from Flourishes Sweet Violets set.

Thanks for stopping by!
