Quilt Blocks

A few years back I decided to make my hubby a quilt and I chose a Fence Rail design. It's made up of small strips sewn into blocks, then the blocks are all sewn together (in alternating directions) to make up the quilt. My quilt was much loved, well used and has since been retired. Seeing it hanging on the quilt rack in my bedroom inspired me to try out this little card....

I had a hard time not adding a little sparkly bling to this card, but it's going into the collection I'm sending to Operation Write Home and they can't have sparkles getting onto the service men/womens uniforms. They send blank cards to soldiers for them to write home to loved ones with...what a great thing to do isn't it?!?!


Have a great day...Tina
