I just made up a version of this quilt card:


SENTIMENT: Wishing You by Verve

DIE CUTS: Spellbinders Captivating Squares
My friend Katie used these dies on a
card that I saw...then I HAD to buy them!
Here's Katie's lovely card:

All quilt cards remind me of the treasured quilts my Grandma Lucy made me throughout my childhood that were filled with loads of love! To make the quilt cards above, cut 1" squares for each color as follows: 4 of solid colored card stock, 4 of medium-weight patterned DSP and 8 of vanilla card stock. Cut all but 4 of the vanilla squares on the diagonal. (The 4 uncut squares go in the corners.) I used a glue stick and a piece of computer paper and attached each quilt piece starting with the center pattern. It helped to start out with a 4 x 4" piece of computer paper scored every inch in all directions. After all pieces were attached, I let everything dry, trimmed all four sides and ran this final piece through my Cuttlebug using an embossing folder.
