STV's Blast from the Past Challenge - Paper Quilting

Thursday AGAIN! time is flying by - cant believe I only have 4 more challenges :(
This week's challenge is to do a "quilt" card - and you do not have to sew (this is not the sewing challenge) can if you want, but not required - I didnt pull out my sewing machine - this is all faux stitching (and i pieced my quilt together with my papers facing down and scotched taped them together - I know - I cheated!! grin) To see Gina's tutorial go to the sidebar over on STV and scroll down to Paper Quilting.
The "twist" is "you can only use a sentiment - NO IMAGE" - let your beautiful quilt shine!! so sentiments only are to be on your card.....concentrate on your quilt....another way to use those scraps!
used GKD's Sand and Red Rocket cardstock with GKD's ribbon and sentiment is from GKD's Showtime Set "Thanks a Million"...quilted with scraps
oh-kee doe-kee! any questions ??? ohhhhhh, you want to know the measurements of this quilt??? the squares are done with 1-1/4 " squares, punched 3 sets and arranged how I wanted - matted them onto 3.75 x 3.75 black's a small mat - plenty of room to add another row of squares.

You can create any quilt design you want, any shape, any colors - quilts are alllllll different!

Have fun! and Thanks a Million for every one of you (-:
Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag stvblastlp9. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, then your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.

You have until next Wednesday, August 4th, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

In order to be included in the random drawing for a free GKD stamp set, please create a new card (or project) for each challenge that you participate in. Using one card for multiple challenges is not permitted. Please read the challenge specifications carefully as only those that follow the challenge closely will be put into the drawing for the prize
