Patchwork Quilt

I started this yesterday and made a couple of beautiful vignettes of wildflowers. The set is from Chapel Road Artstamps. This is the only set I have of theirs but they are beautiful... Field Thistle, Nightshade, and Shepherd's Purge. I decided to take the stamped vignettes and cut them into inchies and make this patchwork quilt. The letters look much better IRL, they have a sparkle to them and they pop more.



I really enjoyed making my little quilt. (This is as close to sewing as I get. :)
The background paper is made from distress re-inkers on a transperancy with water.
I hope you enjoy my little quilt as much as I did putting it together.
