LogCabinQuilt-QWL-CozyQltCollWM

This is Log Cabin Quilt stamp, colored with Copics and layered on Squares and Double Stitched Squares. The sentiment is from Quilted with Love on Double Stitched Rectangles and sponged while still in the die and atop Beautiful Borders. I love the colors in the paper collection, Cozy Quilt Collection!

QWL-DresdenQlt-WM

For this card, I was thinking of a quilt hanging on display, it has to have some sort of frame or hanger….so I used pieces of Filigree Frames to hold my Dresden Quilt. I chose two pieces from the lovely Americana Quilt Collection, using the Dresden Quilt die to cut the pattern. The sentiment is from Quilted with Love and is cut with Double Stitched Rectangles and also framed with Filigree Frames pieces. The largest die from Flourished Star Pattern is layered in there over the piece of red patterned paper….the same piece that the quilt square was cut from! (quilters don’t waste fabric! lol)

What’s great about these quilt dies and papers is when you mix and match, you have pieces to make several cards!

Here is another one, rather plain, but it shows the detail of the stitched edges of the dies and the versatility of the Dresden Quilt to make a flower! The flower is attached to a circle from Circles.

Log Cabin Quilt die stamped with two of the options from All Mothers.

And remember the part about mixing and matching? I already have a “quilt” made with the patterned pieces and solid frame, ready for another card!
