Jillibean Soup - tutorial and a giveaway!

It's almost Happy New Year time !!! I am up on the Jillibean Soup blog with a tutorial on a quilted background look like this:
It looks like it takes a bit of time, but it really doesn't!! half the battle is cutting the triangles...In hindsight, I should have used maybe larger triangles to make it quicker, but I love the effect and will try it again with larger triangles! Here is my page:

 

I would love it if you would drop by the Jillibean Soup blog and say HI! Let me know what you think of the tutorial and as always, if there is something you want to see - just let me know and I will see what I can do!


Not only is it the end of 2013- but it is also my 1000 blog post!!! WOW, time flies.... I have a few Jillibean Soup stamps up to giveaway to celebrate. Just leave me a comment, say HI and I will pick a winner early into the new year :)

Also, Jillibean Soup is having a DT call right away... get your applications started! I know there are quite a few talented scrappers who read this blog!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 

Hope you spend it with those you love :)

I would have never thought of creating a background like that!! I've been looking for a way to start using my sewing machine on layouts and I think I may have found my first project!! Have a great New Year :)
