Thank You Quilt

Good morning everyone.  Today I decided to create a card following  the great quilt tutorial shown over at Splitcoaststampers.  This was a lot of fun to do.  I have tried the traditional quilting once.  Needless to say I never finished the quilt.  I am an instant gratification kinda girl and quilting does not fit that definition.  I love the look of quilts and appreciate the time and patience that it takes to create - it just is not my thing.  I'll stick to creating "paper quilts".

Since this is a "quilt" I decided to dust off my sewing machine and stitch each quilt square.  For my sentiment, I chose a center from the JustRite "You're So Sweet" set, stamped with Memento London Fog, diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles, and matted onto Spellbinders Eyelet Squares.

This was really a lot of fun making.  I'm sure that I will be making more in the future.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great day!
