Blue Tuesday Trigger
Just posting my next Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab World Blog. This weeks trigger is Blue, my favorite color and here is the inspiration photo.
I have always thought it was such a happy color and love the combination of rich royal and white! Ths week, I visited one of my favorite fabric blogs: Anna Maria Horner and knew I had to work this idea into my Tuesday Trigger! She designs quilt fabric and quilt patterns and I saw a picture of the most beautiful quilt called Gathering Flowers (pattern coming soon).
I so wanted to try this look in my paper crafting, but gathering fabric is so much easier than paper! So, I pulled out my satin ribbon and used the quilt to inspired my Tuesday Trigger entry. I cut a circle in my card front. Sewed a seam in my 12" piece of ribbon and ran a gathering stitch on one side. This formed a loop of ribbon. I stitched the ribbon to the circle opening, and gathered the inside edge and tied a not to hold it in place. I punched my petals with my Martha Stewart scalloped circle and cut them in half and just glued them on top. I also used my Swiss Dot cuttlebug folder and a stamp set by Clear Art Stamps, called Sew Special. Here is a close up view of the gathered ribbon, isn't it pretty!
Can't wait for Anna's pattern! Now where to put such a girly quilt in my house of men and boys?!
