Quilted Striplet

Good afternoon everyone

I hope that you are all well and for those that aren't feeling too good , that you're on the mend
Thank you for taking the time to visit. I really appreciate you stopping by and/or leaving a comment

Today's card is made with a purchase from Ally Pally. My new favourite Striplet. I can't stop buzzing with ideas on how to use it, change it. I was inspired by John's post on 31st March See Here

The 2nd die in the Herald Square set mimics the middle square of the Striplet. 
I love how each square of the Striplet fits back into the cut when you rotate it by 90 degrees without too much bother or measuring. 
So, I'm going to play with ideas like re-sit the middle square to get a cross shape. Start with the cross shape and add to it, by inserting at the original angle and get more of patchwork shape. I'll try and cut some for Thursday's post to show you what I mean.
