Fabric (Postcard!) Friday

No fooling, fabric postcards!

Recently, one of my fabulous Talk To Me Tuesday friends, Clumsy Chord, organized a fabric postcard swap over on fabricpostcard

This is a summary of that swap with both what I received and what I sent. It was a huge amount of fun and I loved getting to experiment!

I’ll start with the postcards that I received, because they are FABULOUS! They all make me think of spring, which is lovely, because it’s just what I need right now.

Postcards Received!
Top (L-R) lovely sunrise inspired card from Kristel (clumsy chord), and gorgeous serged ribbon card from Erin

Bottom (L-R) sweet spring birds by Patti and a very plant/spring inspired card “grow” from Amanda

They’re all fabulous and I have them hanging on the wall in my sewing/craft room!

Postcards Sent

For my cards, I took the opportunity to play on a small scale with a few different ideas. I challenged myself to use different fabrics and techniques on each one. The results are what you see here!

    The fabric postcards are striking and very creative. Recognized the skull from a fabric that my college student daughter fell in love with when she made her first quilt last summer. Of course, she took it to college!

    I enjoy TTMT every week and appreciate your down to earth friendly approach and wisdom. It feels like I know you.

    Have also made 2 pillowcases using your excellent tutorial.

    Keep creating!
