Your card is fabulous. I saw you later post on the apple. It lloks fabulous too. did you know that this is a quilting technique? If you are looking for more patterns try adding "quilted" to your searches. I happen to have a halloween quilt on my blog that was made this way. Go to my label for quilts.
