A Stitch in Time
I am an avid quilter as well as a card maker and this card is made from an actual log cabin quilt pattern. This style of piecing, whether fabric or paper, is called foundation piecing. It's a type of quilting where a paper pattern is used as the base to attach pieces to, rather than cutting shapes out and sewing them together. I wasn't sure how the technique would translate to card making, but I really like how it turned out and am going to dig through my foundation piecing patterns to what else I can find!! I used an assortment of stamps to stamp the buttons, tomato, thread and measuring tape, then colored and cut them out, and added a stamped sentiment. See you next Friday girls!!
