The Patchwork challenge really blew me away!! So many of you were inspired by the challenge and the projects were so fantastic. We have five to spotlight today:

#39 Rebecca Hoot shares an incredible canvas project including some details as to the “how-to” which I always love as well. Dan says: I love how she’s used a patchwork of paper scraps to create a base texture for a unique and charming piece of holiday art!

#41 Sheila uses a beautiful color palette to create a box (well, many tiny boxes!) that is so lovely. Tracy says – beautifully decorated box, gorgeous colours design and embellishments make for a very eye catching piece.

#43 Oxana was definitely a team favorite! Sandra said Really amazing card. Love the faux stitches and the vintage look. The bow with the pin is so lovely.  Suzz said – Oxana layered her paper with a touch of padding and sewing which created a shabby chic effect on her card with lovely neutrals.

#47 Laury absolutely took my breath away with her card. I want to make things with this color palette immediately! Anna-Karin said- This pretty patchwork card is a perfect example of the great effect you can get by patching together tiny pieces of scrap papers. The stars and silver embossing adds a perfect extra touch. Michelle said: With modern typography papers and stunning silver accents, Laury created a thoroughly contemporary look with an age-old “patchwork” feel.

#69 Polycraft had a super cute take on this challenge – and makes me want to make something with fabric patches (or paper!) again very soon. Michelle said: You’ve got to see this one. I love the hand-drawn element. She designed her paper quilt so that it looks like you want to tuck yourself in and get cozy. A thoroughly personal project that’s both unique and creative.
