You have created a beautiful card, I love the sewing theme and the quilt motif is amazing. It reminds me of my sister who has taught herself sewing in the past couple of years and is now designing her own wardrobe in her free time. She has done some patchwork blankets, too, and gets all excited when her mother in law from New Zealand sends care-packages because they'll usually include all sorts of fabric for new projects. I'm digresting.
The fun sentiment is such a perfect way to round up your creation, and I like the sequins you added - to me, they look like tiny buttons that match the button dies. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika

You know, I've got quilt dies and they're super fun to put together. The one thing I don't like about them is that they're square and I'm trying to put them on a rectangular card. There's always too much white space.

But you've certainly found a clever way to fill it with your sewing notions! And I love how you angled the quilt square.

Thanks for sharing your awesome project with us at Cut it Up!

I agree Evelyn, the square dies are awkward, and I found the only way I like them is on an angle and hanging over the edge. CarolG

What a perfect card this is! I love the sewing them and of course the snippets patchwork - even the sentiment is 'sew' right!
