Admiration For Quilts

MY BIRTHDAY BLOG CANDY  is at this previous post.

 Our county fair begins today.  One of the exhibits I love the most is the quilts.  I do not quilt; never have; probably never will.  I don't think I have the patience.  But I love looking at them and admire the quilters.
One of the newer sets at Diane's Daydream Designs is Quilted From the Heart.
I made up three cards, changing it up a bit on each card.  For this first one I printed up the quilt after adding the sentiment on the green strip, cut it out, then added some twine knots and stitching on the green piece. 
For the second card I printed out the sentiment, cut it out with a Spellbinder die, placing it on the green strip.  The stitching I did around the perimeter and then zigzaged on the top of the green strip.
Third card: I printed the quilt rod onto the shaving cream technique paper then attached the cut out quilt so it looks like it is hanging from the rod.  The owl in the lower right corner is from the set Falling For You Owls.  The sentiment is from the Owl Always Love You set.
