Good morning!

How about the 200+ year tradition of Americana Quilts!
Today I am featuring two Log Cabin Quilt cards with the new Americana Quilt paper collection and the Quilted With Love stamp set from ODBD.

My first card is a "picture of" the whole quilt (in miniature) with lace edges and everything!  It is covered on one end with a floral bouquet made with the Birds & Nest die set, Fancy Foliage and Prills (white-by US Artquest).  I've added baby buttons on each corner dressed with white floss and my sentiment cut with Filigree Frames and embossed with blue foil embossing powder.
These quilts are so fun to make with each piece cut separately you can mix and match all you want to.

My second card is inspired by the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge (4/13/16).
I made two Log Cabin Quilts next to each other on a piece of white card stock and then cut them down to 5 1/4" by 3 1/5 to fit in my element 1 space.  The rest I made with left over paper from my quilt cut outs and from red linen card stock and white.  This is just a portion of the "large quilt" in my mind anyway! LOL!  I made my flower with the Pretty Posies die set and white mulberry paper, scrunched and folded in quarters then glued together (two medium and one small).  The edges are tipped in Red Brilliance.  I used the Circles and Double Stitched Circles to cut my sentiment.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope this will inspire the inner quilter in you!!

Verse for today
The Risen Christ, Faith’s Reality ] Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

These quilt cards are just crazy beautiful Robin, the Patriotic colors always just grab me by the throat, so I love seeing them as quilts. ( the first vintage hand stitched quilt I bought is in these same colors) :) ~Stacy

Oh, Robin, I LOVE both of these cards, and it's true - the secret is love!! I love how you've used this DP for both of these quilts. It's gorgeous. And how fun that you made one for the Sketch Challenge this week. It's perfect! One of these days I shall get back to doing a challenge, but I'm still catching up (and may always be - haha!!). Hugs, sweet friend, and thanks for sharing these! xoxo
