not quite a quilt...

This is a quilted wall-hanging that's been "in the works" since last summer, but I finally finished it last week. I know someone that's interested in it, but if she changes her mind, I'll finally have a new decor item for Christmas!

Card or Quilt?

Okay, I'm really new at this - I've just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to post a new entry... Why do the kids all go away just when I need them?
But, I'm here now, and I'm debating whether to post a card or quilt project today, because I have both. If I share just one today, I'll have something left for another post, and that will be a good thing!
I guess it will be a card - and this is my latest one:
I love the combination of Kraft cardstock and black ink, and the Stampscapes stamps are among my favourites. The size of the panels means that the card has to be a square one, but I like mixing things up sometimes!
I'll be posting my quilt project in a day or two - stay posted!

A friend of mine has been bugging me to start a blog, so here it is (finally!) I do a bit of quilting, and some card-making, so that's mostly what you'll see here.
You're very lucky, because today, I'm actually going to be posting 2 quilts I just finished. A quilting friend heard about the need for quilts for girls in an African orphanage, and decided to take on the challenge of providing a quilt for each of the 33 girls! Seeing as I have lots of bits and pieces of fabric, I decided to give her a hand, and make a few for her - so here they are:

The first one is called a disappearing nine-patch, and the second one is a variation of Easy Street. Both were made from scraps, and I've found that I really enjoyed the process!
