Brandy (at www.brandylynndesigns.com)
has organized a fabric postcard exchange
once again. You can sign up online (although
the date may be over now)and she sends you
an address that you send your fabric postcard
off to, while you anxiously await a fabric postcard
from someone else.
And I am planning to participate this year. The
theme is “Snowflakes” and here are 2 fabric
postcards that I am working on.
I love the color of the blue fabric and the metallic silver snowflakes. I am
undecided as if I need to add more embellishments or not. I did
stitch around the snowflakes with metallic thread. Maybe some
swirls are needed?
I like the snowflakes here too but it definitely needs something.
I can’t help myself, I have to stitch something on this one too.
And I had to show you one that I made after Remembrance Day. I
think that it is a great way to use up those Poppies. What else
do we do with them?
And the words were stitched on my Janone 6600.
This one won’t be sent off with the other 2.
A little twist in the road here. Dale made this huge quilt.
I really like the colors in it. It even has some metallic fabric
in it-a little bling never hurt anyone.
She wanted a swirl feather, designed by Sharon Schamber.
This quilt measures in at 120″ x 120″ -whew!
I used a light grey polyester thread on the top and backing.
It does show up nicely without overtaking the piecing.
A close up of the panto we used.
And the backing. The stitching really shines on this side.
No pun was intended there, they kind of slip out
of my mouth sometimes.
This next quilt was made by Susan. She did a phenomenal
job with the piecing. I have never seen a quilt lay so flat and
Because it is a traditional Log Cabin, Susan decided that she
would like feathers on it. What a great idea! I love feathers.
You will have to wait until next week to see the whole quilt.
It is finished but close ups look so much better.
Have a great week.
