SOS57 - Red, White & Blue Quilted Star

It's time for the next challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week we ask you to use Red, White & Blue - OR- use Stars & Stripes.
I'm not a stars/stripes person so I opted for the colors. After digging through my paper stash I realized that the only RWB papers are Christmas ones, so I went with that.
I also planned to try the Quilted card technique for some time and this seemed like the right opportunity. You can find the tutorial here.

It might seem complicated at first, but if you just follow the diagram it's pretty easy. And fun too! Will make more for sure, maybe I'll just change the square size from 3/4 inch to 1 inch to get a bigger card.
Papers are from My Mind's Eye - Be Merry collection and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Challenges:
Card Makin Mamas - red/white/blue
EAD designs - red/white/blue
Crafty Sentiments Desgins - red/white/blue
