Keeping the home fires burning
Hello friends : ) I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. I also hope you enjoyed a safe Black Friday shopping spree - if you took advantage of that. I have never (ever) gone shopping on Black Friday. I'm more a stay at home keep the leftovers warm for the shoppers kind of gal : ) One time (only once) Diane and I did a neckStyles™ show at a mall on black Friday. While we normally enjoy great success at shows where people can see, feel and try on our scarves that year we were really disappointed! We quickly learned that Black Friday is for the "Big Box" stores offering large screen TVs and Lap tops for pennies on the dollar! heehee we could not compete with the frenzy and thankfully we decided not to try.
Instead, this year I stayed snuggled up under a quilt chatting with my friends and family on Black Friday - enjoying the sunshine like a cat in a window LOL
These two cards were "hand quilted" by me : ) Two very different paper selections to make for two very different looking quilts. I want to apologize for the terrible pictures! my lighting was off and no amount of Photoshop seems to have helped.
You can make your quilt simple or very intricate depending on the size squares you choose to use.
Please feel free to print out and copy this simple quilt design. If you post your card please send me a link I would LOVE to see it!!
Have a wonderful day.
