Make the Patchwork Quilt Scrapbook Layout

Several years ago when my mom retired from her 20-year teaching career, she decided to make a ninety-degree change and become a student – learning quilting! She spent hours upon hours learning the process, techniques and stitching from an expert quilter from her church, and took on the time-consuming challenge of making thoughtful, personalized quilts for all four of her kids, as well as her grandkids.

She’s made me two patchwork quilts that I absolutely adore, one ballet-themed and one themed around my dogs, and they’re my favorite gifts from her. Today’s Patchwork Quilt Scrapbook Layout was inspired by my love of these quilts. Let’s take a look!

How to Create the Timber Scrapbooking Layout

When I was in my early teens, my favorite place to escape to starting in early spring and lasting through late fall was a gentle creek that flowed behind my house. It was surrounded by beautiful woods, and I’d sit on a rock and journal – just close enough that I could dip my fingers in and touch the cool, shallow water when I needed creative inspiration, and I’d admire the trees that stretched up toward the sky and seemed to reach the clouds from where I sat. From the elms and birch trees to the maples and oaks – each tree brought its own uniqueness to my secret sanctuary.

When I made this layout with the new Timber Paper Pack, I couldn’t help but realize that the stunning papers evoked a similar sentiment, bringing something extra special and personal to my memories. Today, I’d like to share this gift with you.
