A tale of 3 sisters, part 2

This clipboard was for my sister’s SIL who is a serious quilter.  My inspiration came from a picture I found in her Facebook pics of the first quilt she ever made.  I found the pattern online and tried my best to replicate it.  (Disclaimer here:  If you are a quilter, you’ll see that I am not! But I did the best I could.)  The magnets are vintage buttons.  I used the same button along with a couple layers of burlap for the clip.

I decided a ‘crazy quilt’ effect would be good for the back.

How cute is this puppy dog?  This clipboard was for another of my sister’s SIL.  I used the same technique I mentioned in my previous post.

Not knowing her favorite colors, I again had to head over to Facebook for some inspiration.  It didn’t take me long, as I found a pic of her wearing a very pretty blouse with these colors.  I figured if she’s wearing it then she must like it, right?

The three sisters’ clipboards were so fun to make.  When attempting to make something as personal as possible, it sure makes my day when I find out they were a hit!

Be blessed today!
