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 my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
