More Whipper Snapper Quilts...

Hi folks, long time-no blogging, eh?! Well, I've got a couple more Whipper Snapper designs for you today using the newly released sets, Quilting Forever & Springtime Quilt. I've named my two quilts, Cherry Quilt and Comfort Quilt.

In my previous post, I talked about the pattern used in the Comfort Quilt card being a "double wedding ring", but after using it again, I realized it's not a double wedding ring pattern. If you know the pattern, let me know! The central heart is die cut with the quilt adhered behind. I also embossed the die cut chocolate layer for added texture and stitched around the perimeter of the opening. My sewing machine has been giving me tension fits, but I think the wonky stitching fits right in with the look of the card. Another smaller heart was embossed using my Scor-Pal and bone folder and then ruffed up on the edges a bit. Buttons and a sentiment flag finish this one off.



Here's my Cherry Quilt which uses K&Co. Classic K Margo paper along with PTI's Aqua Mist, all stitched together. Each quilt block is colored with matching Copics, layered on a scalloped square. I sponged the edges of everything with PTI's Vintage Touch Tea Dye Chai ink for a more vintage quilt look. I finished off the bottom of the patterned paper layer with a ruffled ribbon and button.



I've got another quilt (card) almost ready, so stop back soon for another one. Also, Mary commented the other day, wondering if I was going to post my Christmas card (which I said I'd do and still haven't), so keep your eyes peeled for that one as well!

Thanks for stopping in today~Amy

The quilt block pattern is sort of one like one called Cathedral Windows. But the seams are in the wrong place.

Pretty cards! This quilter approves!
