Quilt Card Challenge


I was so anxious to participate in this challenge, and I finally finished this last night. Mary issued the challenge and you can read about it here. I used the downloaded "trial size" Christmas paper from PTI for my quilt pieces. I love the festive colors. I also stamped the sentiment on the quilt edges from PTI's "Made of Snow." The paper the sentiment was stamped on was PTI's Spring Moss, which I thought went well with their colors. It was tough matching these greens, but I used Old Olive behind the Spring Moss, and I used a Bazzill paper behind that, all mounted on Real Red. The photo corners have Kaiser Chocolate half-pearls on them. I loved doing this. It certainly went quicker than a real quilt and I love the festive look to it. Thanks for the challenge. Now I have to figure out if I can still post to the challenge and just how to do that. If I missed it, I still loved making the card. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hopefully I'll be back with a few more posts before the holiday.

Don't worry Karen, you didn't miss it! :-) You can play along with any of the challenges at any time. Your card is wonderful! I love how you used the PTI patterned paper--the effect is very quilt-like.

Wowzers, Karen!! :) VERY, very pretty card...I LOVE the colors and all the details you added ~ the corners and the words along the border! Awesome job. And, thanks sooooo much for joining the challenge. (I think I confused everyone with this one! Thanks for making me feel better!)

Beautiful quilting Karen. I love the sentiments around the edge too. My GMA is a quitler and she would love this. Awesome job.

GORGEOUS!!! I love all the meticulous paper piecing and the wonderfully festive pieces you coordinated with this quilt!!! This is exquisite!!! The sentiment along the border goes with this card perfectly! What better time to curl up with a quilt than on a snowy day or frosty night:o) Plus, it takes warm hearts and loving hands to create a family quilt! I love this card A LOT!!! It reminds me of quilting with my grandmother as a child. Thank you for rekindling those fond memories!!!

Hugs!
Carolyn

This is really lovely and gret colour choices. I like to do patchwork & quilting as well at stamping but never thought to combine the two. Its FAB!
