A Quilted Card

Before my daughter introduced me to stamping, I was an avid quilter. Slowly but surely, stamping took over and pushed quilting to the side. For my birthday, one of my friends gave me a beautiful card she had made that looks just like a quilt. Then last week, Ann Schach of The Stampin' Schach posted a quilt card she had made. (For some reason I cannot link to the post.  If I can correct it later, I will.)

Here is my interpretation of the Ohio Star pattern. It is made using 1" squares.

Paper: Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Elegant Soiree
Stamps: Sew Suite
Accessories: Square lattice embossing folder

I think next time I would definitely use more contrast on the background so the star shape would "pop" a little more. It sure does bring back memories of my quilting days!

Thanks for stopping by!
