"Quilted" Card

I like this quilted technique for cards.  My grandmother is a quilter and this will end up being her Birthday card this year.  I know she will love it!  Plus it features her favorite color . . . Blue!  I think this will keep me at the top of the "Favorite" grandchild list!
I made my quilt block 4" x 4" and cut all my squares at 1" and then halved them for the triangles.  I followed the pattern called "Sarah's Choice" that I found online.  It may have another name, but that's what this particular site called it.  I look forward to making more "blocks" for future cards with different designs.  Now I have a purpose for all of my tiny scraps!!

The sentiment is from CTMH "Celebration" stamp set.
