Quilting with Paper is Moxie Fab!

I was inspired to put together a really fast and fun project when I realized I'd yet to crack into my new Material Girl paper by Cosmo Cricket.  And then (you can hear me singing that part, right?)... and then, I realized my card will also be perfect for inclusion in the Moxie Fab challenge this week - Picking Up the Pieces.  Oh how I love when things work like that!

Cute as a Button!

The paper was all pieced together and sewn to resemble a lovely old, family quilt.

I couldn't resist adding a few sewing details to the project to tie the theme together.

If you'd like the step by step details on how to recreate this project, please stop by the CHF forum for my Paper Quilting technique.
