My other hobby....

I was so honored to be the guest designer for American Crafts last week for their "30 minutes or less theme".  It was a challenge, but I got er' done!

I created this page about my other obsession hobby....quilting.  The patterns and colors of modern fabrics remind me so much of the trends you see on scrapbook papers today!

I wanted to mimic a quilt design, so I chose a really simple quilt star pattern and recreated it with squares and triangle punched from papers from the Shimelle collection for AC.

The I machine stitched over the top with "free motion" stitching.  I love this stitching technique!  Then I just added a few stickers here and there!  Easy Peasy!
