Good morning! It's my turn to post a project on the Cricut FANatics blog!

I love looking at quilts, and wish I had the patience for quilting myself. I've also seen a few scrapbookers use quilts as an inspiration for their pages. That that is where I too decided to look for inspiration!

 The bottom half of this layout is made with quite a few "squares" pieced together to look like a quilt. I cut half of them from a blue patterned printed paper and the other half of them from an off-white pattered paper. The "squares" are not true squares at all. The edges curve slightly inward. The shape is button 14 on CTMH Art Philosophy. The edges are inked to give them more depth. Behind these squares is red cardstock, to give the shapes a contrasting background.

The flowers come from Flower Shoppe; the words "oh" welded from Songbird, "Happy" from Cake Basics, and "day" from Graphically Speaking. Oh and the blue scallop border is also from Art Philosophy! I just cut two at an inch so that the two would equal 12".

I will say, getting the "squares" lined up like this was painstaking work at first. Repositionable adhesive tape really helped! But I think the result was worth it. I won't be able to cover the all that "quilting" with pictures, that's for sure!
