365 Cards - Day 38 - That's it, I quilt!

Today at 365 Cards you have to make a card from this quilt block design

as I have done a little quilting I wanted to have a go at this as paper is much kinder than fabric to get the points to meet. I was going to stitch it all on my machine but as I have recently hurt my back quite badly I couldn't lift the machine so I decided to do all the stitching by hand

Here is my card


I am going to give this to a lovely lady who goes to our local crop to say 'Thank You' for making me a beautiful set of quilted table mats.

Papers - DCWV

Hope you like it!
