I took my papers and cut them into 1x1 inch squares. I sketched out my quilt pattern, blocking off 3x3 inch squares and then placing the 1" squares inside the 3 inch blocks. I sewed around them all individually using a zigzag stitch. I placed my photo in the center backed by the pink paper that played off the clay colored bricks in my photo. I kept it simple and used the kraft tag and also the sun and cloud pin that represented sunny San Diego and my trip to Balboa Park with my DIL and fam!
