I've been quilting :)

with paper!!  I've been wanting to try and make a quilt with my scraps for forever, and finally a challenge on Splitcoast pushed me over the edge!  I cut a bunch of 1 in. squares and taped them to a 4 X 5 in. piece of cardstock.  When I finished I used my sewing machine and stitched them.  I used these PERFECT for quilting stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  The thread is from the April KOM and the sentiment is from the Store Kit of the Month.  
Well, wish me luck! I'm going to try and get our taxes done today!
