Today I would like to share a layout that I created, framed and gave as a gift today to a very good friend. I had the pleasure of working with C and we also share the love of sewing. C retired a couple of years ago and has never looked back to the land of technology!

One of the other ladies that I work with began a tradition of giving the gift of a quilt to those lucky enough to retire. I had the pleasure of sewing the majority of the quilt for C.

Here is my layout....

And some closeup shots.

I used a new brayer roller to add the hearts. The metal dress form and spool are Momenta.

I created the flower with ek tools - Natural Texture sheets. The bling is Recollections.
I machine stitched around each scattered block and around the entire sheet of background paper.

The sketch I used for inspiration is from Canadian Scrapbooker and Kewl Beans.

I would also like to submit this to SWAT DRILL #32 - MAY FLOWERS

Other products used - DCWV - The Crafter Stack paper; muslin trim - Pink Paislee, Office tag - Basic Grey, K & Company - label maker & Darice Hemp

A special thanks to C for all the inspiration! ENJOY! HUGS!
