At ABC is Quilt time!

Heidi Ho everyone! It's the first of June and time for another ABC Challenge.

We're marching on toward the end of the alphabet so this time it "Q is for Quilt". Our sponsor this time is the delightful Bugaboo Digi Stamps. What an array of cuteness they have on their online store.

For my card I choose these adorable ladybugs called Ladybug Stack. Aren't they just cute as can be? Because we need to make a card that is quilt related, and because if have stacks and stacks of fabric from my quilting days I choose to actually make a 9 patch square and sew in onto my card base. Sew easy!!!

Here is my care front (and it's only a front because I am pressed for time lately)
I will go back and complete this card when life slows down.

Since I don't have an inside to show you I have just three photos of my card. Here is a closeup of my image. A card recipe will follow at the end of this post.

And here is the artsy view...
