UStamp with Dawn and Friends World Showcase Blog Hop!!!


Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop. Glad you decided to join us.  There are 24 stops for you to make along the way. This is stop #8. You'll have from Friday, June 10 through Monday, June 13 to visit all the blogs and check out all the yummy creative goodness!
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Kris's Love Shadow Box.  Isn't it just gorgeous??


If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.


For my project I chose to do a quilted card.







My mother-in-law makes the most amazing quilts.  Since I am not a quilter (or even a sewer for that matter), I figured why not do the next best thing and make a "paper" quilt!  There are so many amazing quilt patterns out there on the Internet -- the possibilities are endless.  Just change up your pattern and your colors and you will have a completely different look.

As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!! Please leave a comment about my project to be entered for a chance to win a FREE PASS to the next UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! session - I ♥ the Holidays!!  I will randomly select a winner to be announced on Monday, so please check back to see if you are the lucky recipient.  If you have already joined I ♥ the Holidays!! for the Special Party Pricing and you are selected as the winner, you will get a FREE Pass to the NEXT event after I ♥ the Holidays!! which will launch in the Fall.

AND now for the really cool part!! You will NOT want to miss out in THIS!!

Great way to use those small pieces of DSP. I am a beginner quilter and love it, but the paper quilting definitely gives faster satisfaction. Thanks for sharing and the chance for blog candy!

I sew, but I don't quilt - this gives me the perfect opportunity to become a paper qilter!

Quilts are a great way of inspiring new designs for cards...they also make great gift sets for quilters who don't have time to make their own cards to give away because they are busy quilting!

Beverley said...

Thanks for another wonderful quilt card idea! I am in your same boat, my MIL is a fabulous quilter and I can hardly sew a button back on. So I do lots of these for her, lot the idea of cutting the squares into triangles....see, that is why I don't quilt. duh!
