July Secret Sister Card #2

Inside verse reads: "thinking of you."

Three little words for my Secret Sister..."Thanks so much!"

Black Currant Quilts

I was on a Quilted Card kick a few weeks ago.  So I got out my DCWV Black Currant Stack and 3/4 inch square punch and had some fun.

I initially used the Quilted Card tutorial at Split Coast, but then Googled quilting patterns online and made a bunch of other designs.

I especially like the Scottie dog pattern I found - but, of course, I had to make it a Westie and do it in white!  Enjoy!

Quilted Card

Here's another technique I tried during our last Secret Sister round.  The tutorial can be found on Split Coast Stampers here: Quilted Card Tutorial.

I made a few variations using the same colors.  One was square and the others were A2 size.  You can see the one I sent as a Secret Sister here: My Stampin' Hide-away: Happy Mail!

It's really not difficult...I used the SU Grid Paper to line up and adhere the strips.  The grid paper then becomes the backing and gives the quilt block more stability to work with - whether you need to trim it or mount it or whatever.

July Secret Sister Card #1

Secret Sisters bring the fun back to receiving snail mail!

I'm having no luck at all trying to figure out who might be my Secret Sister this round.  Oh well...that's part of the fun!

Thank you S.S.
