I was challenged by a friend to create a step-by-step process for creating a quilt block in paper that would be simple for beginners to duplicate. Part of the challenge was encouraging them to 'use what you have' so they would be freed up fron thinking they had to go buy supplies.
I had a rubber stamp of a quilt block that I used as my inspiration and I laid out on my desktop some old salvaged cards, paint chip samples, wrapping paper scraps, white glue and a bit of washi tape.
By cutting standard shapes I was able to layer parts cut out of my scrappy supplies and came up with this quilt block.
After the process was complete I snagged the block to use on this card front, popped up on foam tape.
Background layers are some foiled paper and scrapbook papers over a purple folded A2 card base.
I went back and added very fine dashed lines to represent stitching on the block and gave the card a gold peel-off greeting.
