Quilted Blessings… and Some Amazing Pipes!


I love it when I can combine a challenge and a purpose! Today’s Technique challenge on Splitcoast is “Patchwork”…using up scraps etc to make a background. And what better DP to use than Basic Grey’s Sweet Threads! This will be a birthday card for a good friend.

TLC329 pieces

These are the scrap pieces I started with and just adhered them to a piece of cs and zig-zagged the seams.

TLC329 Quilted Blessings

I attached my “patchwork quilt” to a piece of Prism cs and zig-zagged the edges.

The sentiment is from one of the new sets this month, Serve the Lord, Our Daily Bread designs. I added the fun Making Memories flowers with a brad and glue dot.


Now, you’re probably wondering about the pipes since this card obviously doesn’t have any on it!! Confused smile

My fourth oldest… second to youngest…?…. however you want to look at it, Timothy, was asked to sing the National Anthem at the CrossFit Regionals held in Columbus this past weekend. Unfortunately, he didn’t ask anyone to to record him doing it! Annoyed

He did find one person that partially got it on video…choppy, but at least I got to hear him! It has to be the shortest version ever of this song! Winking smile

Thanks for stopping!

Oh.My! Dawn, your DS is fantastic! I too am disappointed that he failed to mention this to anyone so that the whole song could be recorded. :( He is so gifted, and G*d given gifts are meant to be shared.

As for your card, I love the patchwork look. This of course reminds me that I'm supposed to be sewing. :P

Thanks for sharing both your DS, Tim, as well as your lovely creation.
