Colour Q Challenge #112 - Quilt

This week's Colour Q challenge #112 is made up of such delicious colours!  Yum!!


I decided I wanted to make a home-made quilt look.  Took 1" squares, cut them down by hand so that they were not really straight, and did some faux stitching around each square.  Then, I poked holes and used thread to create real stitches to attach them to the card front.

Took this photo at night in my light box.  It still makes a ton of difference shooting in the day time vs. night!  I need to remember to take my photos before the light goes away!

Thanks for visiting!
