Small Crazy Quilt

This image on chipboard might have been the inspiration for my collection of fabrics for a small crazy quilt.

Well, not a quilt. A panel that could be part of a quilt but in my world is for something else.

I used most of the quilted fabric for these card backgrounds. You just want to reach out and touch these cards.

Then I had just enough of the panel left to make these three new cube beads!
So, one fabric panel equals cards for work and beads for me!

Here are my Saturday crafty links!

Looks lovely, but a quilt with that imagine might have been awesome, and then maybe some of those lovely beads for tassels. Oh I feel cozy already.
