Are you like me and have admired all of the beautiful quilt patterns that you’ve seen, but not sure you’d be able to create one yourself because paper crafting is more of your thing?  Well, here is the perfect way to combine those beautiful patterns with your love of paper crafting.  What’s even more fun is that you can do it with any pattern you see.  This is the star pattern that is often seen on many quilts.

After choosing the pattern you will be using, start creating the pieces you will need.  For this star pattern, it takes sixteen 1” squares that were cut with a die and die cutting machine.  You can, also, cut everything using a paper trimmer.  You can use different sizes, but keep in mind that the quilt block needs to fit onto a card base so it needs to be the appropriate size for that. Eight of the squares were cut from patterned paper (A Perfect Winter by Echo Park shown) and eight from cardstock.

Cut each square in half diagonally using the paper trimmer.

Lay the pieces out before adhering them to make sure that they are all correctly placed.

Now, cut a piece of cardstock that measures the same size as your quilt block.  This one measures 4 ¼” square.  Add strips of tape or double sided adhesive down the entire square.

Starting at the top left corner place the first triangle piece in place.  Continue to work in rows making sure each piece is lined up correctly until you have placed the last triangle.

Finish the card off by creating a card base.  This base is 6” x 6”.  Add an additional layer of patterned paper or solid cardstock that measures 4 ¾” square behind the quilt block before adding it to the base.

Stamp the sentiment (this sentiment is from the Jingle All the Way set by Hero Arts onto a 1 ½” x 1 in piece of cardstock that has been layered onto 1 ¾” x 1 ¼” piece.  Adhere it to the center of the quilt.

The next time you find yourself admiring a beautiful quilt take a minute and see how easy it would be to create it on one of your cards. There are a lot of patterns to choose from in books, individual packs and even templates!  Combine patterns and designs and even having fun create your own and remember to have fun creating with your paper.
