My friend, Anne Lise, stopped by for a visit before Memorial Day weekend. We've been friends for 30+ years - ever since I lived with her family in Karasjok, Norway (zoom out) as an exchange student. Anne Lise loves to quilt, so when she comes we generally go to her favorite quilting store. We spent 2 hours and she went home with three quilts to make! I bought a fat quarter of this great EGG material!
A fat quarter is 1/2 of 1/2 yard of material - 22x18. I ripped it into about 15 pieces and sewed it on to card stock. You'll probably get tired of the egg material before I'm done with all the cards! (grin)
I did this card for Gingersnap Creations challenge - QUOTE. When I broke down and bought the Tim Holtz bird/birdcage die, I decided I needed to use it A LOT. The quote is from an ARTISTIC OUTPOST set: SERENITY. The quote is "A bird does not sing because she has an answer. She sings because she has a SONG."
After sewing the material down, I pulled the loose threads out up to the sewn edge. Its pretty easy to do with cotton fabric.
