Quilted Paper Halloween Alice

I am so in awe of any of you who quilt!  The current Blue Moon Challenge at Gingersnap Creations is to be inspired by quilt blocks to create a project.  I decided this would be a perfect way to use more of the yummy Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper pack I bought.  I used the Aunt Dinah square from McCall's Quilting, which you can see here.  It was lots of fun to cut out the pieces, see the whole thing come together and then add a few bigger visuals.  But it was much harder than I thought! And the whole thing is still not really square.  But, still, it's a fun challenge if you want to give it a go!
And ,while I was at it, I made his Halloweeny birthday card for my niece who was born in October, in response to this week's Something Completely Different challenge to use purple and green:
I'll add a birthday greeting on the front before I send it off!

Using paper for patchwork - what a great idea, how inventive! Looks fab. I really like those Alice papers.
When I see all your halloween inspired work, I kind of wish we made more of it over here in the UK but it's not that big over here.

Love the paper choices here; I find real quilting to be a challenge. Years ago I made quite a few cards with this technique, but haven't thought of it in a long time. Perfect for fall & winter cards!
