Post Cards

Speaking of postcards, I worked through the process for the first one.  I think I am going to add a layer of single sided lightweight fusible to the back stamped fabric before fusing it to the peltex-don't  like the texture of the back.  the front was a piece I had done just playing with leftover triangles from a quilt and they looked like trees to me so I used some leaf stamps and a peace stamp and gold and brown inks.  For a first, I like it! I have some very traditional fabric from our local quilt shop, The Crazy 9 Patch,  for the demo-a Mother's Day post card.  Need to go to the Post Office to see how to mail these.  I have a plastic sleeve that they just fit into.

Going to "The Comforters" for our first Saturday of the month work day!

Seems like we are on the same page a lot, Elaine. I am fiddling around with making a Valentine's Day postcard or maybe a mug rug for my sister. It is difficult for me to think in terms of a very small project. I think your idea of an interfacing is very good.

Thank-you-plan to work on these this week. I have materials for Valentine's day, St. Pat's and Easter. My friend, Debbie and I have volunteered to team up and be co-presidents of the Ramona Back Country Quilters. Our local quilt shop owner, Martha, is going to coordinate monthly programs at our meetings and I volunteered to show how to make postcards. I was a teacher by profession and am looking forward to doing the demo-it is stretching me as well! I am going to set up 2 blogs this week-One for our "Comforters" group that will link to the church website and one for The Back Country Quilters so that the members will know what the demos are each month and I will post pics of their sharing. Thank you for all of your encouraging comments-I am looking forward to meeting you someday!
