Greetings, Stampers! It's Sunday and time for another awesome challenge from The Paper Players! This week LeAnne has a theme for us: "In Stitches". You can create something sewing themed, stitched or funny!
Before I talk about my project I just wanted to give you an update on my DH, Bill. He's out of the hospital now and in a rehab facility getting his strength back. He's feeling better than he has in a long time and I hope to have him home by the end of next week. Thanks so, so much to all who left comments and offered their prayers and concern. It really means a lot to me and I cherish every comment.
Well, initially this challenge had me stumped. I do not have a single sewing themed stamp, nor have I ventured into the world of sewing on cards. I was considering doing some faux stitching when it dawned on me: a paper quilt! What's more sewing themed than a patchwork quilt? I found the pattern for this quilt over at Splitcoast Stampers. The quilt consists of 1" punched squares, most of which are cut in half on the diagonal. Working from the inside out, you adhere them securely to grid paper (to keep things straight). Once the quilt is done, I ran it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder to add some texture.
Some of the petite calico-like patterns in the Print Poetry Stack were just perfect for my quilt. I thought the little "Hand Crafted" greeting from the Tiny Tags stamp set was perfect, also. I tied it onto a antique brad with some linen thread.
