Quilt Card

Hi there bloggers!  You have seen a similar card before, in fact, there is a tutorial at the top of my blog that shows this technique.  This card however, has been done using a slight adaptation to that technique and it also uses my New York Collection so the finished card will look slightly different.  If you are a visual learner, the video might be an easier way to come to grips with the quilting technique too.  I hope you enjoy it!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue and all

As a quilter in a previous life (before cards lol !) I love this, and there are so many designs that could be used. The lacy effect is really pretty, must give this a try

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, I love video days and this one is such a lovely card to make using the quilting technique, will definitely have a go at this one.

Morning Sue. I have a confession to make. I was looking through your you tube videos a couple of days ago and i came across this video and watched then made lol. I was so pleased with it i now have it hanging up in my craftroom so i will have to make another one. You could make it in many colours and patterns with just a little patience. Thank you for a great video with all your hints and tips. I forgot to say i think this is a beautiful card lol.
Take care everyone as its very cold, frosty and icey.
Best Wishes.

Clare W said...

GM Sue - this is really effective - will watch video later - we are having new technology here today so if you dont hear from me for a couple of days you'll know why! Hopefully not but you never know - I am keeping everything crossed it all will work OK - I hate changing/upgrading but sometimes it just has to be done to keep up to date with things - but there is always hidden agro somewhere in the process previous experience tells me..... Keep safe n warm all

Beautiful card & a technique I'd like to try.


BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, this video is fantastic, showing the steps to making a beautiful quilted pattern. Love the Aqua and Teal combination with the white. Thank you, have a great day. Bx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
What an appropriate gift to styart the day - a beautiful beautiful quilt and something we all need at the moment just to keep us warm and cosy.
I am such a fan of trational quilts and this just shows off one of the patterns to a T. I love your colours for today and this has just had to go into my 'must do' file. I can see that when I try to do this it will be staying with me and not going anywhere.

Norah - thank you so much for making me smile yesterday. At least hubby remembered the day. I think it's just one of those things that men do - they can remember a date but not how many years. When my lovely other half was having his 40 bday he decided and declared to the world that he will be stopping counting years and had decided to become 29 for ever. On his next bday he said he was 29 and some months. Now this has gone on for years (he is actually coming up to 74 this Sept and still says 29+so many months.) The only problem is that when he has to complete any official form he really has to stop and think how old he really is.

Well it's a little warmer this morning - no heavy frost - so hopefully the weather forecasters got it wrong. Mr E has just returned with breakfast and says it's only -1.

To all in pain and suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

TDQ Karen said...

Nice to see this technique again, I remember the original in mauves and lilacs I think. Such a lovely use of colour and texture xx

I like this style of card I remember the first one you made

Patricia Youdell said...

Hi Sue
A different card which I like
Pat x

Maryann Laursen said...

A very different style from what you normally share, men still very beautiful and just my colors too,

Anonymous said...

Crikey, Sue, do admire your patience and dedication!! It's a lovely card and especially like the pretty diecuts for the sentiment. Afraid I'm another one who hasn't got the attention span to do this!! It's one of those where everything is going swimmingly, and then you make a big booboo near the end (oh dear, how many times....?) However, a very clear and instructive video - thank you.

'P' in Wales

Gail C - hope the treatment goes well, always an anxious time.
Norah - never know whether to laugh or cry at your stories sometimes (often do both). Hope you had a good anniversary day despite everything!

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue and everyone. A lovely card in lovely colours and such a great technique. Good to have a reminder of how to do things, will enjoy video later. X

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue & Friends,
I remember this card when you originally did it a year or two ago, loved it then, love it now! There are so many different layouts you could do and you could "embellish " it in different ways too? I will watch video later.
It is absolutely freezing this morning, even inside the house! So please go careful out there today ladies!
We had to take Bella to the vets last night to have her stitches removed (she was spayed 12 days ago), the night previous to that she slept in our room and was licking and biting what I thought was her claws, no apparently not, the little minx had removed her own stitches! On the bright side the Vet said she had done a very neat job, luckily she hadn't damaged the wound at all, good job she waited until they were 'ready' to come out! There was no way on earth that sh was keeping that collar on!
Crafty hugs to all,
Sandra xxxx

Fabulous technique along the lines of a 'jigsaw' card, with a beautifully turned out card. Have some sewing bee friends who would love this card.

Debbie Tinks said...

Nice card Sue .... Have a nice day crafting ...x

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. I loved the one you shared a couple of years ago and this one is just as beautiful as the blue/teal are gorgeous together. I have been trying to decide which type of card to make today and now I know, just need to decide on the colours now : )
Norah, at least Campbell remembered your anniversary yesterday, even if he was a year out, that has to be a step in the right direction, doesn't it : )
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Susan Battensby said...

Hi Sue
This is a lovely technique, must give this a go, maybe with red and pink. Needs a bit of patience but quite a quick card to put together I think. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sue,

You're on a roll with all these different quilting techniques!...will definitely be giving this one a try especially as you've shown on the video how to lay out the design first before glueing it all together, very helpful, thank you...

Ooh, super card. I am a quilter, so all my friends would like this one. Got up to snow again this morning, but only an inch, so I'm hoping it will go soon.

Morning Sue. A lovely card today. I really like the idea of patchwork you could do lots of colors and use up your scrap card. Will watch video after babysitting. Thanks again Sue. Hugs Heather x

Good morning Sue, and all the ladies,
I love the quilted design of this.
Ecco - George is 75 this year and we are so excited as we will get free TV licence, whoopee (I mainly only watch the news and C&C!)
Sandra - Bella could get a job at the vets as a stitch taker-outer!! Glad she's ok).
Have as good a day as you can ladies, and keep safe and warm. xx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
It's an absolutely beautiful card, one I shall be doing at some time for my friend (might even be a Xmas card for her - in gold, red and green as contrasts). Such a good idea to lay it out beforehand - in fact, for me the ONLY way to do it.
You are a clever lady, thank you for sharing.
Hugs, Rose

Good morning Sue,

Once again you're mixing it up a little - I love the colours you've used but I don't think I'll be giving this one a go. Thanks for sharing and for the fab video and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Really like this card and the quilted look of it. I tried quilting once a few years ago and got so frustrated because I could never get things to match up properly, so I might have more success with this!love the colours you have used too.
Feeling a bit rough today, I only have cold but it has gone onto my chest which is always difficult for me as I have asthma. Still at least it has broken as for well over a week it has just been loitering!! Still I'm much better off by far than some of the lovely people on this blog. Sandra, glad Bella is ok. We had a border collie who did exactly the same and also a cat - I think the stitches become tight as the wound heals and is uncomfortable for them.
Hope everyone has a good day. Love to each and every one of you, Alison xxx

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card. Thanks for the video.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card and the technique. Great video as usual. I remember when you first demonstrated this (I checked my files and it was nearly 3 years ago!) as I made several cards with different colours and styles. I used a smaller die then so only had to cut it in half and yes, it can be a bit fiddly but fun to do with a lovely effect. Thanks for reminding me, I think it is time I re-visited but with some of the newer dies.

Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe.

Joanna Dickson said...

Good morning Sue.
I don't know how or why but im sure I've watched this same video before. I enjoyed it then and I've enjoyed it again. Really effective. Like the blues you have used too.
One to remember for remember for anyone who sews.
Keep warm and enjoy your day
Lots of love

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
This idea really appeals to me as it could be adapted in so many ways and colours. Even children could cope with this if the cutting was done for them. I love the colours you have used and it is just a bit different. I remember seeing something similar before but a long time ago!
Thanks for making me think!
Heather - all the very best with the tidying! Just done that. It took longer than I intended but was worth it! Keep going!
Norah - I'm in a tidy up mode just now and today it's the cupboard under the stairs! Now that made me think of you! No saying what I may find later today.
Gail - hope all goes well for you today!
Alison - get well soon!
Love to all , especially those missing just now or ill or sad .
Love Myra P xxx

Pat S Witney said...

Another stunning card, but I think I'll need to see the video to get to grips with how it's made.

Nice to see a totally different look on the card today. A great card for people that don't like "too fussy" cards.

terrie said...

Wow, so many pieces and when you put them together you made it so easy...
Your card turned out lovely especially with the teal combo color.
Well done Sue

barbiepinkfairy said...

Effective pattern layout. As ever I don't like Teal colours. What is it with me as it's so popular with everyone else?

Saba said...

Hi Sue.

Adore today's card and your video was absolutely brilliant, such clear explanations, especially laying all the pieces out beforehand. Had a look back at your Quilting Tutorial as well and was so inspired that I had a go today at trying to replicate the card. It worked beautifully and I now have a finished card for my friends birthday - she is a quilter and will love this card, so thank you once again for sharing this technique. I have made a couple of Quilts but would never have thought of using the patterns to make a card. I am now full of ideas, Tumbling Blocks for a Baby Card, Log Cabin as a background, the possibilities are endless, you have inspired me!!

Gail, hope the pre-chemo hospital visit went well. It's a worrying time for you, sending you gentle hugs.

Sam, hope you hospital visit has helped and you will be getting the treatment you need to get well again.

Alison, hope your chest infection is not affecting your Asthma too badly.

Love and hugs for all.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning to Sue and my Wilsonettes friends,
Well Sue i was waiting see the actual colours that you chose to us today as i have the dark jade and paler mint sort of green in some of my photo's and navy blue and sky in others which looks lovely also. I thought you had miscounted when you gave the amount for each colour as i had it double but it is because you were a clever when you were designing them and made the centre square so that it could cut into quarters. I think this could be for the terrors of a lady crafters lot called....men. I think it would be lovely done in the colours of their football teams or just their favourite as not all men are football supports. I know blaspheming like that at this time in the morning, but my beloved daddy couldn't stand the sport and felt like me in giving them all a ball so they didn't fight over the one. Because Campbell likes the blue Glasgow side he watches football if his team, a major cup final or play off for one of those so called important matches. After seeing the disgusting way that some men play, they are worse than children and talk about ham acting, well it is no wonder some go into acting for real as they are half roads there on the field. These are the people that are suppose to show the children and lead by example.
Thank you everyone for our wishes yesterday, for the first time in decades my hubby remembered to get a card HIMSELF and a wee bunch of flowers. Kirsten normally gets these for him and he gives her the money back as he had forgotten but this year it was Kirsten that forgot and asked what they were for. He stayed in long enough to have his dinner and then was going to Kirstens' for just a couple of hours at the most......three and a half hours later he came back.
The young man that came yesterday for to price up mum's windows gave me a good price but needs Campbell there to discuss things so that i don't mishear or misread anything that he says which does actually annoy me a bit as yes i would and have discussed it with him, but it is not him that is paying the money out for them, it's mum (through me). Having said that he was very pleasant and was in and out only working out roughly what they would be no more than from the sizes that he could see for himself in under 15 minutes. I read up on the company, some people are saying steer clear, others saying how fantastic they were and how pleased with the job. Can anyone recommend a good window company where they got good service and a good price as although i was really happy with the laddie, the website reviews are really knocking me for six.
NO Janet, he 29 with 44 years of experience. It is usually 21 with years of experience, but i take it Mr E preferred being 29, it must have been a better age for him, but it's quite funny that he can't actually remember himself how old he actually is.
Oh Sandra, i have heard of DIY stitch removal by certain two legged people who shall remain nameless as she is no longer here, but never a four legged having a go at it. Can i just say well done Bella on the clean and careful job that you did, but not to be advised wee 4 legs. See, it's that independent spirit that you promote in your house Sandra, that even the cat is using it's initiative.
It's normally me that starts something off, but it was our Sue with the spirograph. It was so nice seeing just how many had the hours of fun with it. Good old fashion games that kept you amused on a cold, yucky day when mum wouldn't let you out in because you were already choke it fue with the cold, bronchitis or whooping cough like was in the case of us but all we wanted was to be able to go outside to play.
Having to cut it down as i had over done it again on blogger so sending hugs to all my Angels both on blog and not at the moment( i hope that you are able to come back soon),
Love and crafty hugs
