Special Day

I also quilt and as any quilter will know, the day a quilt gets finished is a day for celebration.
I love this idea of embossing after piecing the design which makes it look like quilted fabric.

Gorgeous. I love doing quilt cards... don't have the patience to do a real one!

I have a 'quilt' die in my NBUS stash that I must try - hopefully it is less stressful than sewing one - I have made two, if I had not promised one each to my two offspring, I would never have made the second one!

I can well understand how the day a quilt is finished is a day of celebration! So many hours and so much love go into them. This card is just gorgeous! Thanks for joining our "Celebration" challenge at Dies R Us!

Beautiful card. It would make a great quilt.

I used to quilt but I don't think my shoulder would take it anymore. Putting that last stitch in was always so exciting.

Then..............picking out another pattern and the colors. Oh so much fun.
