It'll Quilt Out

Sometimes when making a quilt - there comes a point when you are not sure whether or not to proceed. Is the project 'finish worthy' is it 'quilt worthy'? Then - when quilting - is it Bonnie worthy (the extreme machine quilter) or is it just Trudy worthy (utilitarian quilter). If your inner fiscally responsible - I spent hours cutting - I bought it so damn it I'm going to finish it wins this turmoil - You continue working on the project with a mantra to keep you going. Over and over as you remain bent over the sewing machine - you hear, in your head, 'it will quilt will quilt out...IT WILL QUILT OUT.'
This card was one of those - should I proceed or deep-six it? I told myself - "it'll quilt out" and finished the little bugger.

Maple Leaves Wreath

~Base card SU!
~Layer of hunter green cardstock and topped with a layer of design paper by Bo Bunny
~The wreath was made by making a scallop circle using Spellbinders and Cuttlebug and lots of maple leaves were punched - the square base of hunter green edges were rounded using a punch
~A coordinating Bo-Bunny strip was added vertically along the side
~A brad from the Dollar Tree was used to attach the orange ribbon to the wreath
You can get up close with the card by clicking on the image.

Time to get to bed - have to get on the road to Ankeny by 6:30 am.

All good wishes,
