Quilter's Sampler

As I had mentioned a few days ago, I recently purchased the Quilter's Sampler set (and the Quilter's Sampler Sentiments too) from PTI. I have had my little eye on these sets since Nichole first released them, so I should get a medal for waiting this long to buy:), lol. I have always been drawn to it because my mom used to be a quilter, and I myself made a small 4-square quilt, back in my early days as a young married woman. So, I'm so happy I finally got it!

This was the first card I made when I found a spare minute to create earlier this week. I wanted to start simply, which is definitely what I did with this card. I just had to color a few quilt squares and the scissors. I wanted to somehow get the thread and the scissors working together, so this is what I came up with. Sewing around the small quilt squares and leaving just one thread lose that I could weave through the scissors so it appears the scissors are cutting the thread. I'm sure you're just thinking right now...."how clever is that?" And guess what? I thought of this all by myself...I didn't case it from anyone:)!

Here's a little close up for you of the scissors and thread....I secured the end of the thread to the card under a little star from the quilt and a piece of dimensional tape....

The scissors and quilt squares were colored with Copics.

I can't wait to play with this set some more. It's such a blast!

Well ladies, I've got to run. I have to work again. No rest for the weary they say. Oh, and BTW, we're having a heat wave today...it's above ZERO for the first time in days! Woo-hoo!!

Hugs,

Amy
