Quilting Kimmie Block

If you are looking for WOYWW, please scroll down.

     I found Kraftin' Kimmie stamps this year and have fallen in love with many of their images.  This is my newest image called "Lavender".  I have a good friend that is going to teach me to quilt and I made this card for her.

     This card is entered in the Saturday Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #89.  The challenge this week was to refrain from using embellishments.  That was a really difficult challenge for me.  I love my embellishments; I mean it's really hard to not at least add a ribbon or some glitter.
    Even without the embellishments I am pretty pleased with this card.  I had this quilt paper for a while and had been saving it for just the right project.  I used the smaller patter to paper piece Lavender's quilt and then matched up the background to the quilt blocks, fun!  The main image is popped so she doesn't completely get lost in the background.  I did try adding cream and white behind the image but just didn't care for it.

  1. Love, love, love it, Mary Anne. My niece is a crazy quilter and she will love this, too! I'm sending a copy of the pic to her so she can admire it. Even the skirt is quilted! Very creative (and no, I haven't peeked at my b-day swap card)
