Card making tip
I almost always make my cards in batches of 4 or sometimes 6. That's mostly because I sell them, but I would recommend making more than one even if you are just making them at home for yourself or a gift. The reason for that is although they are already quick to make, if you make more than one, they are even quicker, because you only have to think, change thread, or choose fabric once, then do it several times. It's a mini version of factory efficiency, and since it is a consumable item, it doesn't hurt to have a duplicate or two. I'm sure you wouldn't have any trouble finding someone to give the extras to:-) What I DON'T do is more than 6 very often, it gets boring at that point:-) Sometimes you can even use different fabrics and still use the same thread. Most patterns don't get made more than once, but since these are small, I'd highly recommend it!

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!
