MIM #159

I was thrilled when I saw the video for this weeks Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink as my first love, crafting wise, was patchwork. I still have a bundle of flyers a friend, who was a paperboy, collected for me as they were the perfect weight to act as backing papers.
So the opportunity to transfer this technique to a card was one I couldn't wait to have a go at.
In my excitement to assemble the card I didn't wait quite long enough to allow the "wet paint" sentiment to dry on the vellum!
I used PTI cover plates Deco to frame my "quilt", and  Harlequin for the "quilting".
The papers are all scraps from Teresa Collins Vintage collection.


  1. This is adorable Sarah. Love the use of the Deco cover plate.

  2. Beautiful Sarah!! It truly looks like a quilt!!

  3. SUPER JOB!!! Looks so much like a real quilt I want to snuggle up with it...the edging makes it! Bet you sewed some beautiful quilts...Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love your deco border - it really looks like a real quilt border. Great job! The colors look like a Civil War quilt scheme.

  5. Gorgeous 'quilting'! And your border is amazing!

  6. Nicely done. This one was the first one I did the same day. Love it as I'm a quilter also.

  7. ooh ooh I want a real quilt that looks just like this!! beautiful job!!
