CC209, When life throws you scraps, make a quilt

Today's challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers is a colour challenge... to use Basic black, Rose Red and Always Artichoke. I really wanted to use my brand new Stampin up set called "Quilt Quips" - I just picked it this morning...
I thought of two of my sisters, Valerie-Raye and Joan, and my Mother-in-laws who are all quilter's, when I purchased this set. This is what I came up with - I decided to make the quilt into a wall hanging. I coloured the images with prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. Cut them out, matted the squares with basic black, non SU rose, then Always artichoke. My main card is 5"x5" AA, next is BB, then SU AA designer paper. I stitched around the edges of the main card and also in between all the quilt blocks. Added the brads and the top ribbon tabs. I cut a BBQ skewer for my quilt rod. Stamped the sentiment on whisper white in basic black, sponged and stitched edges. Attached the ribbon strip and sentiment. Added Diamond stickles parts of the quilt blocks.

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. That's beautiful Mom, it totally looks like a wall hanging...good idea! I really like the colors and layout:) Love you, Kristy

  2. love your idea for this color challenge, Patricia. The details with all the brads and your signature stitching are amazing. I really like the uneven stitches around your sentiment!

  3. Beautiful!! I love the brads in the intersections - and the black thread is a nice touch!
