I have been trying to decide on the perfect valentine card to make for Kurt. I want it to be something extra special and very personalized. I have been scouring the internet for ideas. While searching, I put together a few ideas I had seen and combined them to make a quilted card. I had blank notecards (a pack of $50 from A.C. Moore for about $7 - used a 40% off coupon to make it about $4). This particular card was made from left-over jellyroll scraps from a quilt that I made for Hannah. I used 2.5" squares and fused them to a piece of fusible web cut to the size of the card. Once my design was complete, I trimmed the edges to fit the rectangle and then fused it to my card. After it had cooled, I used a zig zag stitch and stiched my "seams."
The second card is made from Moda charm squares. A charm square is 5", so each square makes 4 - 2.5" squares. I followed the same format to make this one. The possibilities are really endless with these cards. I am looking forward to making many more to send to my friends, and possibly to sell on Etsy. I'm still thinking about that one.
