quiLLing and quiLTing

Today I'm going to share my new project with you.
Hey, fellow quillers, have you ever seen a kind google suggestion "did you mean quilTing" when you inquired about quilling? That urged me on combining these two techniques, and there's what I've got:


This card is going to take part in a few challenges:
Gingersnap Creations - Shades of blue: the quilting is blue, the quilling is blue... =)
Practical Scrappers - Using your stash older than 1 year: in 2002 I was in Jo-Ann store and was so happy to see the precut squares for quilting of according colors, so I couldn't resist buying that! But I never used the fabric: for a normal large quilt that was too little, and making a small work wasn't inspiring enough, so the squares stayed untouched until this month! I finally did the quilting and integrated it into a card =) I also used even older stuff: the darkest cloth and the one with blue bows were bought about 20 years ago - I wasn't even going to school yet =)
Colour Throwdown - Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Not quite Navy: the green leaves aren't very 'wasabi', but I think they're close
Paper Sundaes - Make your own flowers: quilled violets (do they count?)
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Summer: what do these cold shades have to do with summer? Let me explain. This summer in Moscow, where I live, is enormously hot for our region (+37C), so depicting fun-in-the-sun, heat or anything bright would make me totally 'baked' and exhausted. This summer I'm dreaming about a shady garden, with flowers and light cool wind playing in the leaves; lying on the lounge with that rural-style quilt, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather... =) I want my summer to be that way =)
Raise the Bar - Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue: Old - most of the fabric; new - light-blue paper and quilled flowers; borrowed - wire I used for the flower stems I borrowed from my husband's stash; blue - well, that's obvious =) - I managed to get into the three of week's picks, that's flattering =)
Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated =)

  5. Пэчворк в открытках-ЭТО ЧТО-ТО!!!
    Интересная придумка!
    Оттенки серого и синего- мои любимые.
    Но больше всего мне листочки понравились!!! Такие нежные!

  6. Nenika, спасибо большое! Очень приятно =) Листочки я сделала как переход от ткани к квилингу: вроде и не бумага, и не ткань уже; но закручено и текстиль =)
