The overall size is 11 x 14, including the frame.
To make sure the Hexagons stayed in place I used my sewing machine with a straight stitch to sew each one to the base. When I had that done, I decided it needed a pretty floral image.
To create that image I used the Mini-Tickets Die with the Base tray to cut the larger tag from cream card stock. So I could mat it on a piece of coordinating patterned paper I trimmed about 1/16" from each side and used a tiny circle punch to trim the corners so it would mat nicely on the original sized ticket. When I was certain it would fit on the Mini-Ticket cut from patterned paper I stamped a pretty flower on it from the Flourishes the "Year of Flowers" with Black StazOn Ink.
I used a small watercolor palette and a tiny brush to paint the image to coordinate with the papers of my quilt.
To complete the focal point image I attached the image to the patterned paper Mini-Ticket with Foam Tape. To help it stand out from the paper quilt I used the ATC Die to cut a piece of black cardstock to mat the pretty image on. With a piece of pink ribbon sandwiched in between it is the PERFECT embellishment for my paper quilt!
To finish the design I stitched the paper quilt to a piece of the pink patterned paper from the Lily Bee Designs Paper Pack layered on top of black cardstock.
It looks AMAZING in an inexpensive 11 x 14 white frame from Target!
I'm going to feel nice and cozy all summer every time I see my beautiful paper quilt! I love it and it only took an evening to put together! This would make a beautiful baby shower -- bridal shower or gift for any occasion!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you like my fast and easy paper quilt!
