Quilted card

Quilted card
Originally uploaded by ddhabicht

I often experiment with new and different techniques on small pieces of fabric. I end up with lots of quiltlets, small pieces of art that have no purpose other that being a happy quiltet. Today I made a card by taking my little piece of fabric and putting onto a stabilizer, then I did some outlining in black thread with my free motion foot. Once I was happy with that I switched over to a zig zag stitch and added some ribbon and metalic threads and stitched it all down to the card base at the same time. I left about 3" of ribbon hanging off of the end so I could tie a bow. I think it makes a great card for someone special, its also a great way to use those left over quilt blocks. You can purchase card stock with envelopes at a craft store or art store. Enjoy

That's a great way to use the small quilted pieces! I'm sure people would love to receive them as cards.
