Inspired By Quilting

This week's challenge over at Shopping Our Stash is create a project Inspired By Quilting.
This Echo Park Bundle of Joy papers are on of my favorites, and I have a hard time throwing away even small bits.  I hoard these scraps and punch them into scalloped squares.  When I get enough, I lay them in strips, emboss with a swirly embossing folder, add ribbon, and a sentiment.  If there are baby motif, I make baby cards.  If not, I make them as "Hello" type cards.  Makes me feel better about creating pretty trash!

Those who know me personally are aware that my MIL is an amazing quilter who has authored numerous books, holds patents related to hand applique, and programs machine embroidery designs!  Her company is Heirloom Stitches, check out her website!
