Friends Are Like Quilts

Hello again, friends!  Do I love quilts?  Or do I love the idea of snuggling under the weight of it on a cool evening?  Is it the patterns or colors?  The mix-and-match of a quilt?  Who knows what it is, but when I saw a Tutorial Challenge at MFP/SpeedyTV for quilt frames, I knew I was going to try one.  I chose a dry embossing technique for the card base, assembled all my little squares, and then created the frame with label dies.  I love this oldie goldie, retired SU sentiment that seems appropriate for a quilt frame card.  We're having a "cool" front again in FL so those crotons have taken another field trip to in front of my sunny kitchen window.  So, friends, do you love quilts? This quilt frame card will also be entered into a challenge at Word Art Wednesday.

Kren: This quilt card is so pretty, and what a great sentiment. You are welcome to share up to 5 entries at Word Art Wednesday each week, so feel free if you want to link up again.
I'm so sorry I didn't recognize your(blue sillhouette) photo on my blog. I also feel bad that I wasn't already following you sooner. Please accept my apologies.
I'm so blessed that you've found your way to WAW, and I love seeing your sweet cards. It's great to have you share them with us. Hope all is well in Florida!
