Quilt Card and Tutorial

Hi guys,  today I am showcasing my quilt card using the Damask accents.  There is another colour way that I did this card in and I will post it at the end of the tutorial for you.

Start with this die template which is from the new Damask Accents from Spellbinders.
Cut 16 of these pieces, 8 from a neutral colour (I'm using white) and 4 from a light tone and 4 from a dark tone colour.  You can cut these quicker if you do two at a time.  There is no need to emboss these so it will save a bit of time there too.

Next step is to cut squares the same size.  If you use a square die, your finished piece will fit together better than if you cut the squares on a guillotine.  If there are any bits of the points that extend past the edge of the square, nip them off with your scissors.  Glue each Damask piece to the matching square.  You can change the look of your quilt by making the backing square a different colour too.


Next, you need to cut all the coloured squares in half and four of the white squares. You will need to leave four white squares uncut.
Next you will need to cut a piece of square card that is slightly larger than your four squares across.  I use tape for this step to get the positioning right.  The four squares will be the four corner pieces.  If you want to be exact with this you canuse a ruler and mark it, but I find it is easy to place the squares in each corner then use the cut white pieces to get the spacing.  They need to be layed out in this pattern.  The edges should touch each other as it forms the perimeter of the pattern.  You should be able to adjust the corners if need be if you haven't used glue on them.  Once you get the pattern straight you can go back and glue the pieces down
Next go in and place the coloured halves in from the outside edge.  You will alternate colours as you go around.   You can see that the colours will continue to make the original sqaue shapes with the white pieces.


Continue to add your colours, this time placing the colours in the opposite directions to make the pinwheel shape for the centre.  These have only been layed in place for the picture.  Your lines should meet up seamlessly.
Adding the last remaining pieces will complete the pattern for your quilt card.  I added a sentimenrt on mine that was cut from the Persian die templates.
Here you can see the same card done in a second colour way.  This card shows the sentiment cut from the Persian die templates
The card to the left is exactly the same card except without the Damask accent piece attached to the squares.  This card, once assembled using the above instructions, was run through the new Spellbinder Embossibility folder called Patchwork to give the card texture.  It is a nice alternative to the first card but yields similar results.  if you would like to see another tutorial on this card, Davy and Jackie, friends of the blog have done a version too.  Just go to http://davypainterman.co.uk/CardCrafting.aspx  I hope you have enjoyed seeing how these cards were made.  All for now, Sue x

Really beautiful card here again today and I love this die. I made something a bit like this with the doily sets last year, but love how you made it into the star , that looks really cool.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue, I took extensive notes when I saw you demonstrate this card on air I love it so much. I am drawn to quilting patterns & own a few quilting books just for pattern ideas to use with my cards. Never thought of layering the paper to create texture. It's inspired. Like with the 2 sided embossing folders, I'm left asking 'Why didn't I think of that?' With Love & Light Theresa. H

Hi Sue, this is fabulous and your instructions are so clear. I am certainly going to try it. You are such an inspiration to us all, thank you.
Have a lovely time with your mum.

Wow Sue, the 'complete' SW version is sooooooooooo more detailed than Jackies, goes to show, watching you on C&C for a five minute demo isn't enough to grasp all the techniques. You should definitely bring out more dvd 'How to's for those of us that can't 'record' the C&C shows....Once again..STUNNING is the only word to describe both your cards and YOU..safe journey :) Davy xxx

Janet said...

This one is already in my Sue file already, I liked it so much that I wrote myself instructions whilst you were on tv! It's a real winner for me.

Maggie said...

Hi Sue thanks for the tuturiol I was impressed with this card when I saw the shows its easy when you know how... rofl!! I have not got the dies you have used but will try embossing folder technique and look at dies I have and will hopefully get to make this today great colour combos on your cards and they all look so different :)

kaydi said...

Wow Sue-such a simple card and yet so very effective. Your ideas are wonderful-thank you so much :)

Ruthie said...

I saw this card on C n C but did not realise it was separate dies put on to squares I thought that you had just embossed the squares then cut them. So in fact far more dimension that it looks. Great idea, I think I like th blue one best.

Redanne said...

Lovely card and thanks for the great tutorial.

Stacey G.-2 Craf-t-4u said...

Hi Sue
great card will try this one when i have time put aside for crafting. Smashing colours. Like the thoughts of speed cutting. So little embellishment but seems a lot to look at, very strange but cheap lol. (not cheap looking cheap to make). Great fun to make.
Thank you for great week on spellbinders.

Hi Sue, This is such a great card - thanks for the recipe, I always find your details so clear and easy to follow. Hope you have a good flight and a lovely time with your Mum. I've got my striped grosgrain ribbon ordered - thanks to Patricia who mentioned it yesterday. I hadn't noticed it at Sam's when I last ordered a week or so ago, but now I've got all the Create and Craft colours coming from her (already posted - her service is brilliant!). I've also got pink/cream,(paler)blue/cream,celery(pale green)/cream (looks lovely in the picture!)and pink/brown (I'm also quite excited about)coming from Sew Sweet, who also posted quickly. So shall have a stripey bow for any colour card! Congrats to the winners, Sue x

Lindyloo said...

Hi Sue,
This will be very short for now I am sorry. I've been to the hospital for test today and being uncomfortable afterwards I have been back and forth pc doing my fave blogs. I usually leave yours to last so I have more time to spend writing something special. Wrong decision today, I have gotten worse and not better so have to go to bed.
I loved this card when I saw it on C&C, my favourite being the one without the Damask diecuts (even though I adore them). So kind of you to have done a step by step, they are so easy to follow.
Take care my friend. Catch up tomorrow. Hugs Linda

Dear Sue
Thank you for the tutorial and sharing these lovely cards. It does put me in mind of when I used to sew pram and cot bedding when my grown sons were young.Vee xx

Ideal card for my quiltmaking friends. Will definitely give this one a try. Also looking forward to trying out my new Damask & Persian Accents dies and micro beads.
