Let it Sew 08890
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs April release! Aren’t the Quilt images & dies fabulous? And the papers are beautiful!

For my quilty/sewy card, I’m featuring this cute, cute, cute little sewing machine & greeting (from A Time to Mend), Log Cabin Quilt die & some papers from the Americana Quilt & Old Glory collections. Since the greeting is 1 line repeated 3 times, I had the idea to add 3 sewing machines in 3 colors but to get the best impression on this solid image, I stamped it w/ the Memento inks onto a semi-glossy photo type paper. It helped tremendously to have it in my Misti so I could stamp it more than once to get full coverage. For the print version, I inked just the outline of it & stamped it onto the paper then stamped it again on the photo paper & paper pieced it. I will mention, after I fussy cut that tiny outline, I realized it would have been much easier to just fussy cut the inside & attach it over the the other image. Oh & learn!

I die cut the Log Cabin Quilt 4 times..1 white, 1 blue & 2 different prints, then arranged them inside the solid blue version outline. A large square was die cut out of the white front & placed on top of the quilt w/ all the fussy cut sewing machines on top. I used the Misti again to stamp the greeting 1 line at a time using the blue & red Versafine inks. Some buttons (from the Matting Circle dies) were cut, stacked & attached.

Here’s a look at the inside.

    That is some mighty fine detail cutting there and I hope we all learn from your experience to fussy cut the inside next time. That is totally the kind of thing I would do (the harder way of course.) Your card is lovely and I love the paper pieced sewing machine. 🙂 Thank you for sharing with us!
