Curtain Call Pin Cushion

Any challenge that calls for small print paper with a sewing theme is right up my alley.  Here's the inspiration photo for the Curtain Call challenge.


I think I actually have some of this fabric in my stash.  I'm drawn to those 40's prints which may explain why I have a number of 6 x 6 stacks with similar prints.  I used seven different ones on my quilt card.


I added the NBUS sentiment from MFT and some stitching lines with my IDenti Pen.  I think I will be recreating this a number of times with different papers and sentiments. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. Your visits and comments are always appreciated.

    1. I can't reply to your email so I hope you see this and not think I ignored you. I'm sorry but I have no idea what size the blocks are. I made it 5 years ago and mailed it out so I can't even measure for you. I just cut up scraps of copy paper and kept trimming until they fit, then used them as a pattern.

    2. I just lifted this card and can give you the measurements! The squares are 1 1/4 x 1 1/4. The rectangle on the left center and the two on the top are 1 1/4 x 2 1/2. The sentiment block and the one below it are 1 1/4 x 2 5/8. All the spaces in between are 1/8 of an inch.
