Quilted Cards

Jake's teamTired of looking at the same old Hallmark cards, I decided to make my own. How about something personal with a photo of the birthday girl??? (later birthday boy, wedding, loved ones) These range from 10″ to 15″, include a photo of the recipient, layers of fabric, tulle, machine quilted and embellished with ribbons and beads.

One of the cards turned out to be more of a quilt.  It is “Mig & Bob’s Family” with Mig & Bob as Santa and Mrs. Clause.  Their five children and spouses are the elves and elfettes and the 16 grandchildren are ornaments hanging loose with their names printed on them.  The final quilt was 48″ wide and so much fun to make!
