Paper Quilt

There was a challenge last month at the Gingersnap Creation site to make a paper quilt and then create art using the paper. If you go to there is a plethora of wonderful quilting patterns. I used the Crystals pattern to create this quilt.
 The paper are from Echo Park. I chose a simple pattern and was glad that I did. For my project, I made color copies of the paper and saved my masterboard.
I signed up for a swap to make pennants for a Christmas banner that will spell JOY. I created the three J's for this project. I decided that a quilt should have a little sewing on it, so I got out my machine and did a little outline sewing on the paper.
This is my finished pennant, that went in the mail this week to my swap partners.
and a close up...
I made a couple variations for my partners and myself. The scraps were used to create a few cards. The first J's I made, were not large enough for this project, but worked great for cards.
I was too late to enter the challenge, but it was a creative blast for me. I've traveled so much this fall, my creative mojo was in a slump. 
Changing subjects here...I've never liked my blogspot background since I've changed it...anyone have any suggestions?

Love the quilt, and how brilliant to turn it into a master board. I've never changed my blog set up since I started a year ago, so I got nothin' for you on that one, I'm afraid.

These are crazy beautiful! And I agree...I don't like your background either, let's change it. I'll do it for you.

Gorgeous paper quilt, Julie! And I think our pennants are going to go nicely together. Mine went in the mail this week too.
