    Here are a few pics of the special cards I made from scraps. I spot glued the pieces in place, then sewed (quilted) them in place.

    Thanks for the compliments. They are fun to make and so many different designs to make. Can be done for any occasion too. I made a log cabin scrappy for a birthday card last month. Lady said she was going to frame it!
    Happy Quilting everyone. I'm away to Dollywood tomorrow!

    Great work!!.......do you use a certain kind of needle to do this type sewing/craft work?.. how often do you have to change it to keep it sharp enough to 'sew'?

    I use whatever needle is in my machine.I think it's a ball point, but any needle works. I don't remember the last time I actually changed my needle out. It still sews fine.
