Utilizing other fabric types
Quilted cards are a good place to use fabrics and materials that are not normally used in quilting, because you don't have to worry about them being washed. :-) The mitten is wool, the moose is birch bark, and the raven card has a swirl of satin behind the raven. Sewing on birch bark is pretty easy, but it does have to be freshly peeled off of a log, so I only use it when we are cutting trees for firewood.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I also have many tutorials, including some on you tube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
