I love a beautiful quilt. Quilt blocks are so interesting to look at and I so wish that I had both the time and the patience to create them more often.
But, unfortunately for me, I don’t have an abundance of either, so I found a fun way to incorporate quilt blocks in alternative ways.
What better way to show off the fun pattern of a quilt block than to use it make a card. How cute would it be to send a quilter friend, a fun hello card made as if it were a quilt block? Pretty cute, eh?
Have you ever considered sewing on paper? It’s actually the very first way I learned to sew. I have been sewing on paper for years and I love the way it looks. It is super easy and I have never had a problem with using my sewing machine on cardstock. (Just be sure to put in a fresh needle when you’re done).
This is the first of several fun projects to come using quilt blocks. I am collaborating with Jess from OklaRoots with her Block Party (Block of the month). I am going to come up with creative ways to use the quilt blocks that she has designed.
