Fun Quilting Projects

Now this is a lot of red, white and blue! My youngest daughter, Michele, learned to quilt making this with her Aunt Margaret recently. It will be going to a wounded serviceman through a quilting project my sister participated in when it's finished. Margaret had Michele lay out her pattern and sew the blocks together. It's beautiful! I am totally flabbergasted at how neatly all the pieces and corners lined up! My girls can sew and I can't!

Since I'm not much of a seamstress beyond repair and buttons, I did a bit of my own quilting; paper quilting that is. This card was inspired from a card by Ann Schach. The star pattern was made out of 1" squares adhered to a 4x4" piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock and embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The 4th of July sentiment was printed out on my computer. The hardest part of this card was getting everything lined up. Please visit my instructions on an easy way I found to do this.


I can't help you much with quilt questions but feel free to contact me with any questions you have on paper quilting.

Hope your Sunday is great!
God Bless,
