FWF-Birthday Quilt

Hello! Happy Friday. I decided to create a little paper quilt with some of my Stella & Rose scraps from My Mind's Eye. After laying them all out and adhering them to my cardstock base, I paper pierced around every single square. I then used an archival pen to make a faux zig-zag stitch around the squares. I used several distress inks to ink up the edges of all of the papers. I used a nestie to die cut the frame and the sentiment is from Unity. I made a rolled paper rose and punched some leaves from other scraps of paper in this collection. I pleated some eyelet lace on the bottom and tied some pink, burlap string around it and made a loopy bow. An antique stick pin seemed to be the perfect embellishment to finish it off.

The clothes pins at the top actually hold on some thick butcher's twine to hang this from something. I plan on hanging it in my formal dining room on my antique pot cubbard.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Emily

Oh, this is just stunning! I can't imagine how you weren't crossed-eyed (or zig-zag-eyed) after penning all that faux stitching! But the results are well worth it! That is some gorgeous paper and a fabulous sentiment!
