I like to make quilting/sewing themed cards for my sweet mother in law, who really is a gem and just as creative as the women in my family, though her sole medium is quilting. Every member of my family is lucky enough to sleep snuggled under one of her beautiful love blankies.
I've made a few quilts myself, but I hate anyone to look at them too closely, since a little perfectionism would really be an asset when it comes to quilting. I've come to realize I am just too impatient to be a good quilter--but as my dear husband says--"that's ok, babe, you don't have to be good at EVERYTHING." I don't know about "everything"--after all, the one time I tried to knit, the women in our church group fell down laughing. Really, it was most uncharitable.
Anyway! I had a lot of small strips of the super cute new Sweet Bella DSP left over from a fun little box (which I intend to post later but I want to include the template and I don't know how yet so it may be a while) so I chopped them up into one-inch squares and glued a bunch down to the front of a card. Easy as pie (lots easier than quilting).
Leaving you with a picture of the quilt on our bed, which was Shirley's largest and most intricate project that I know of, which she did as usual a fabulous job on. Natalie at about two weeks old, if that, is blissfully asleep on it!
