Terrie, what a fun challenge! I had a blast creating this card that I found that was similar on Pintrest and I had a very similar quilt design in my Silhouette library I modified it and cut the borders out of white card stock and then all the insides I cut from different scraps of designer paper and then inserted them like a puzzle. I embossed the background using a cable knit print which sort of fit the cooler weather. Cut some paper flowers added them along with a piece of a doily and there you have it. It was so much fun!

That is a fabulous quilt card, Barry! I love all the details you have in it.

Mine is not so detailed, but I had fun making it:

I had intended to put a border around my "quilt", but didn't want to add more layers, as it already has depth. You can't tell from the picture, but the center piece is popped up, as is the butterfly on the one panel/piece.

My mom prefers to make appliqued piece quilt blocks and then framing them! I did a paper pieced (appliqued) pumpkin inside a double frame!

Good timing on this challenge. I needed a thank you for my sister-in-law who quilts (and I'm home for 4 days!!!).
