"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

FAUX QUILT SQUARES...


Hello! I have a little tutorial for you today, and it's an easy one, too! I have always loved the look of quilts and have just started learning to sew my own. This project has the quilt~y look, with none of the sewing! You can make your own paper pieced quilt squares to frame, make tags out of them, even iron-ons for shirts or aprons. Supply list:



Start by picking out a quilt block diagram and open it in a Photoshop.  I placed mine on an 8.5"x11" canvas. Since my frame's opening is 8"x8", I sized mine so there would be a nice white border.
1 - Select each open area in the block and erase it. Then create a new layer for each opening and fill the area on the new layer - I used black. This will make it a snap to clip your papers and move them around.
2 - Take the layer with your black guide and invert it to white.
  
3 - Add your papers, clipping them to each layer. Print it out.
4 - Trim off any excess and put it in your frame.

I hope you'll give it a try, it's a super easy and quick project that would make a cute gift!
