Lazy Quilter's Series - Part 1

Let me make a disclaimer right now. I'm not a quilter and have no intention of becoming one but I do admire the variety of amazing and beautiful quilt work I've seen over the years and there are some designs that I think would be great fun to cut in I thought I could present my Lazy Quilters series...I hope to post the svg files soon but thought I'd share a couple of designs I really like. And since I love the combo of red, white and black I played with a few different combos with that color scheme.

This design was called Tumbleweed and in the sample below I've just spaced the pieces a little further apart for a little different look.

I also thought it could be fun to create a special card for a quilter, too! In this sample I've overlaid a smaller pattern over the larger one in the center.

Paper Lanterns

A request led to creating a simple paper lantern but then it led to offering a couple of additional ideas and options. By extending the top it allows a place to add a phrase, saying or name(s).

I've lined the one on the left which is very pretty too...also a great opportunity for your double-sided paper.

I'm also including a scut file that has the smaller version that is perfect for a battery operated tea light. Charming and fun...what a cute way to create table markers with individual names, too! Or give a personalized gift. The Stencil or Steamer font is ideal. If you don't want to crease it, you can gently push the ends together to create a softer rounded effect.

The zip file has several files including some scut files. I've created an optional scalloped top and have a file with the word Welcome included. All were done in Scal 1 so it should be compatible with both versions. File link here!
