Halloween Quilted Background

When I saw some of the quilted cards on SC, especially  this card  I wanted to make one too but use it as a background. The squares on the "quilt" are 1 inch squares. I have made one with the 1 3/8" punch which I may show you at a later date but I think the 1 inch is  better because you have more squares.  Basically, you just put the 1 inch squares on a cardstock and then cut out with your top note die.  I just added the owl punch bat, which is so adorable, and the sentiment with some ribbon. I have made quite a few patchwork, trip around the world, log cabin, and Irish Chain quilts in my time but this one was a lot easier!!!


  1. Nice card! Love the quilt and the background colors! I love that owl, too!!

  2. Thanks Chris! But I thought you were away this weekend? Ezra taking a nap?

  3. Saw this card on your Splitcoast Gallery. It's so wicked cute. The own is adorable...
