More Patchwork Quilt Cards

I know, I know, more patchwork quilt cards....but this is my "go to" idea whenever my scrap box gets out of control.   I had a color scheme in mind but needed two more squares of the coral pink color.....and my Spectrum Noir pens came to my rescue. I colored up a couple of white squares and it all worked well.  I had purchased a "Lizbeth" ball of thread (size 10) in the "Juicy Watermelon" color and had fun putting this one together, the colors just looked refreshing for me. The Lizbeth threads can be found here:

     This sentiment is from one of the Hero Arts Operations
     Write Home stamp sets. The papers are from Reminisce.
     Reminisce makes a faux "Declaration of Independence" 
     paper that I enjoy using on Patriotic cards. 

Here is a video for you:

This card is stitched with a multicolored spool of Omega thread purchased in Mexico, so sorry I do not know the color. But it is a vibrant yellow, red, royal blue, and green variegated blend.  On this card the thread coordinated perfectly with the Reminisce "Neighborhood Stripe" paper.

This card kind of ended up with Nautical-looking colors.
        The sentiment is from SRM stickers.
