Hello, it’s Enfys here
I recently had a trip to the USA where I bought a Scan N Cut diecutting machine, (and picked up a nasty ‘plane bug’ on the way home into the bargain) and was intrigued by the quilting patterns built into the machine. I thought some of them would adapt really well as backgrounds for cards, and what better papers to try it out than the fabulous Kitsch collection, where the diecut elements have a hand stitched look.
Here is my first one, all the pieces were stitched with black thread…..
No stitching on this one, just the pattern pieces laid out in a quilt pattern. The sentiment is a Studio G one and I thought the elephant was perfect!
If you don’t have quilt patterns to play with, the collection is still perfect for the patchwork look, I just used the die cut shapes on this one, with a die cut sentiment, this is my favourite colourway, I just love this blue and red together……
I hope I’ve inspired you to play around with some patchwork, I’ll certainly be trying this again. See you again soon
