Many years ago I decided to take classes to learn quilting.
One year back in elementary school, we had to sew a patchwork cushion cover and... well... I was not good at putting it together so one of the teachers finished it for me.
I should have learnt the lesson back then... I'm not good at working with needle and thread and fabric.
But no, years later I wanted to make a quilted patchwork throw and I decided to have lessons.
Of course, I was a real disaster. I made a few basic patchwork squares but I didn't get any further.
I also had a small sewing machine but I managed to break it quite quickly...
I'm a real good cross-stitcher but sewing is not for me.
When I saw this stamp at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps I immediately loved it. She is called Lavender the Quilter and I'm afraid she's discontinued now.
My original idea was to make a vintage card but, while looking for papers, I found this bright paper from Doodlebug and colored my stamps accordingly.
This is my card:
I've used an easel card so that Lavender could really pop-up when the card is opened:
I love her!
