Birthday: Star Quilt
I cut the star out first. Then, using the kites from Stampin' Up's You Send Me Soaring stamp set, I pieced together the quilt. I used both glue and snail tape to hold the edges down.
When I first envisioned this design, I thought the star should have the point up. But it just didn't look right. So I put the the star askew; I like the visual much better.
Then I ran the entire piece through the embossing folder for the quilting effect. I sponged the edges, added some layers, and added the sentiment.
