Grecian Square Quilt Card

I saw a fabulous card at Dannie's Designs.  She got the tutorial for the fabulous quilted card here, so I quickly went directly to the tutorial and had a look!  My mother-in-law is an avid quilter and I thought this would be the perfect type of card for her!  And can I just say, Oh My Goodness!!!  This was so easy to make and I love the final look!  I did want to try a different variation on the card in the tutorial so I headed off to search the World Wide Web for quilt block patterns.  I found some great instructions for a Grecian Square quilt block and went from there!  I really like how this card turned out.  I imagine I can kick it up a notch or two by adding some embellishments, but I think to do that I would need to turn it into a standard size card (this one is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4") because I don't want to cover up the quilted pattern.  I may try that next!  I would LOVE to hear what you think about this card!
