I have a box filled with failures. All sorts of water colored, painted, melted crayon and stenciled pieces that weren't good enough to use as full back grounds, but I liked parts of them and thought maybe someday I could use pieces for tags or butterflies or ???? Well that day is today. I pulled a bunch of fall colored pieces and cut them into squares with SB/Classic square die. Ran a piece of white cardstock through my xyron (which I use about twice a yr.), attached the squares and then cut with SB/pumpkin die. Ran a dark brown alcohol pen around the outer edge to add some definition. The stem is SB/Swirls and the sentiment is TL/sentiments 2014. Added sequins to the mat and adhered to white card base. So many times I was tempted to throw all these failures out - so glad I didn't. Never thought of using them for patchwork.

Beautiful! I remember we had a beautiful patchwork pumpkin pillow when I was young, and your card immediately brought that to mind. So glad you had fun with this challenge, and I hope you'll keep thinking patches in your future flopportunities! Thanks so much for playing my Mix-Ability challenge!
