Our Friendship is a Patchwork Quilt

Author Unknown

Our friendship is a patchwork quilt, a beautiful design,
Stitched with heart-made patterns, uniquely yours and mine.
It’s made of scraps of memory and joys of every hue,
Colorful together times, with laughter woven through.
Our friendship’s stuffed with kindness and filled to overflowing
With heartfelt understanding, warmly comforting and knowing.
Our friendship’s bound to last the years, for every cherished part
Is seamed with care and sewn with love... an heirloom work of heart.

Quilting is a unique, practical, and absolutely accessible art form, with the benefits of collaboration, creation, resourcefulness, and, of course, comfort.

I’m a quilter as well as a paper crafter. I love the colors and feel of fabric. Finishing and giving a quilt is amazing. For my own use, I especially value scrappy quilts, with pieces of fabric that have meaning-- kind of like a comfy, cozy scrapbook.

My challenge to you is to create a paper project that shows quilting. Try quilt-patterned designer paper, a quilt in an image, or use scraps to piece your own block.

Here's Jenna Barber's tutorial: quilted card

Here’s a great resource for quilt blocks:

Quilter’s Cache

My sample uses the traditional “Card Trick” block. Appropriate?
