Thanks so much to Mdm Samm and Thearica for hosting this fun, creative and inspiring hop...no nets here...we have to make it up as we go...lol!
This is my "stamp" ... meet my hands, quilting on my Bernina...I used a paper piecing pattern from Ruth B. McDowell's book called When Quilters Gather. I love this book and would like to make a quilt from the patterns someday.
She advised increasing the size of the pattern significantly from what was in the book but silly me...I decided I would use the pattern as is...a bit challenging actually.
The paper pieced section is 5 inches by 10 inches. I turned the edges down on this piece and appliqued it onto a piece of wool felt. This is a nice sturdy piece of felt you can find at Michelle's shop if you want to do something similar. I finished up with pinking shears to make the "stampy edges".
And then, because this is a "stamping hop" I used a rubber stamp to add my Stamp text. I chose QUILTING FOREVER USA since almost all the stamps I buy these days are FOREVER which, for any international readers who may be unaware, just indicates that I don't have to add additional postage when the rates go up, which seems often, these days.
Thanks for joining me and please be sure to check out all the other Stampers "on" today!
