A Warm Snuggly Quilt

Good morning all.
I'm here bright and breezy on a Saturday morning to share a card I made for Less is More.
I was honoured to be their April winner and the girls asked me to GD this week.
Here is my card.


Can you guess this week's theme? It is -

I was thinking of going down the hexagonal shaped card route at first but in the end went with this quilt design. I'm really a novice when it comes to quilting, I do enjoy making the designs up but I've kept the finished products to simple cushion covers. I have a half made bean bag cover in the cupboard that was supposed to be for my Grandson but I couldn't figure how to finish it! I blame it all on my bestie Di who got me into quilting after she took it up when she retired and gave me some of her patterns and now my stash of fabric is nearly as big as my stash of DP. It's a good job the quilt shop closed in town and is now a 20 minute car journey away!
Anyway, to make a quilt you cut up fabric into geometric shapes and then reassemble into patterns and as the cue word over at CASology is warm, the two things together sparked this idea.
I started by cutting a panel from off white card using a Port Sunny purchase from MFT to create my quilt shape, then cut the stitched panel from the center using another MFT Blueprints die. I kept the colourway simple, using the warm colours, orange, red and yellow, seen in Time Out's challenge and cut the shapes out of scrap, replacing the pieces flat into the panel. The sentiment, stamped in brown, is from a Christmas set but I think works well here. A quick and simple card that can be made in lots of different colours.

Please check out the rest of the LIMettes here for more fabulous geometric inspiration.

  12. What a sizzling hot design Julie! I love that you took your inspiration from quilting and you represented it perfectly in those fab geometric shapes. There is such a wealth of detail to look at here and the inlaid die technique works a dream. Gosh - what a shame you didn't know how to finish off that bean bag for your grandson - I do hope you manage to finish it someday. Thanks so much for being a wonderful guest designer xx
