make a quilt

Hi friends.  One of my favorite activities is making quilts.  The best kind are scrap quilts that use lots and lots of different fabrics.  I love putting all the different prints together and creating something not only beautiful, but also useful and comforting.  And I love sleeping under a quilt. 

Gina K had a new stamp release on Thursday, and of course, there is always a challenge with a randomly drawn winner.  And who doesn't like a chance to win something? 

For this challenge, the only stamps we could use were word stamps.  So I chose a sentiment from Nana's Needlework (Gina K). 

For the background, I cut 1/2" strips of paper from a 6" pad of Basic Grey Indian Summer.  All the other paper on the card is actually a light peach, but I sponged tangerine tango and ruby red ink on it, so it's pretty well disguised. 

I used a die from the Lotus Borderabilities (Spellbinders) set for the horizontal strip and for the sentiment, a die from Apothecary Accents Framelits (SU/Sizzix).  The sentiment piece is attached with dimensional tape. 

I did a little faux stitching and also added some black pearl accents.

It's chilly enough today.  I think I'll go work on a quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

Your card highlights that sentiment PERFECTLY!
Plus, what a great layout for scraps!
