I didn’t have enough time to make my mom a quilt for Mother’s Day, or to make the afghan she’s requested, but this quilt card took hardly any time at all.
To start, google an image of a quilt square you would like to replicate. I went with a variation of Broken Dishes.
Then take two (or more) pieces of scrapbooking paper. I cut mine into half and half again until my triangles were the right size. Once you have the right size triangles, or squares, lay them out on a piece of cardstock and glue them down. Ta-da! A simple quilt card for mom, or grandma, or anyone.
