iNSD Quilt-Inspired Layout by Audrey Mutschall

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

Hi everyone! Audrey Mutschall here today with here on Paige's blog today to share with you the layout I created for my challenge for International Scrapbook Day in Paige's Happy Scrappy Place Facebook Group!

The challenge I chose was QUILT-INSPIRED! I decided to paper-piece a quilt block pattern using lots of pretty papers from the Bloom Street collection. I started by cutting 3-inch squares from 16 different patterns of paper - most of the paper was from the 12x12 paper pad, but some of the patterns were from the Bloom Street Digital Collection. I kept the four corner pieces as whole squares and cut the other squares in half, forming two triangles. This allowed me to arrange the triangles into an 8-point star pattern, a popular quilt block pattern. I glued the squares and triangles onto a sheet of white cardstock and then got to work poking holes in a zigzag pattern along the seams. I drew a zigzag pattern in pencil, poked holes, and then erased the pencil before stitching. I used all six strands of an aqua/turquoise variegated embroidery floss (DMC 4040), which added extra color and texture to the layout. After the stitching was completed I added my photo which is mounted on vellum and patterned paper. I added sentiments from Paper 13 and a couple of embellishments from the ephemera die cuts to complete the layout.
