Get Well Quilt

What do you do with all of your leftover patterned paper or DSP? One idea is to cut 3/4" squares and piece them together to form a quilt pattern on a card. Here is one I made:

   Teeny Tiny Wishes

   Island Indigo A-2, 3/4" Squares (4)
   Daffodil Delight 3/4" Squares (5)
   Lost Lagoon 4" Square
   All ABloom DSP 3/4" Squares using 2 different patterns: 8 squares from one, and 4 squares from another
   Whisper White 3 3/4" Square

   Archival Basic Black

   Quilt Pattern Card

   Daffodil Delight Ribbon 4 1/4", Petal-A-Plenty Embossing Folder, Adhesive

As noted above all quilt pieces are 3/4" squares. 8 of the squares are cut in half: 4 of the Daffodil Delight and 4 of the Lost Lagoon. These form the ends of the ribbon pattern.

The quilt pattern is adhered to the Whisper White 3 3/4" Square. Keep all squares close together and as straight as possible. 

When your quilt is put together, dry emboss it with your favorite embossing folder. I used Petal-A-Plenty. It adds a very nice texture to your card and looks more like a quilt.

You then adhere this piece to the 4" Lost Lagoon Square. This is then adhered to the Island Indigo card base.

I stamped my sentiment directly onto my Daffodil Delight ribbon and then adhered it to my card base. You may choose to add the sentiment differently. 

The card is not difficult to make, but it does require patience and precision. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please leave your thoughts in the comments section. I look forward to hearing from you.



  1. Could you tell us what the size is of the basic card? It’s a beautiful quiltedcard!

    1. The card is an A-2 size: 5-1/2 x 4-1/4. Use a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 sheet and score at 4-1/4 on the 8-1/2 side. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
