Fabric Postcards: more new ones

15 12 2015

My guild members of East Bay Heritage Quilters are again taking up the task of making fabric postcards for the show in March of next year, and some of the finished ones are already coming in.  I LOVE seeing what other fabric artists will do with this same 4″ x 6″ empty canvas.

I hope you are inspired by their work.

Here are six by Orna Pascal:

And seven from Claire Sherman:

And just a few of the ones I am playing with.  I have had barrels of fun using this pre-WonderUndered fabric donated by Marion Ongerth.  I think they were the leftovers from her projects, and I LOVE leftovers, even those from someone else.

I can barely begin to describe how much I love this cat fabric!

And sometimes the fabric speaks for itself.

HOT TIP  for making the postcard process easier:

My new favorite sewing machine foot, called an Open Embroidery Foot, which makes applying decorative stitches to the body of the cards and the zigzag stitches to the edges of the cards SOOOOOO much easier.  You can actually see exactly where you are sewing.

The foot for my machine looks like this:

Have fun making these yourself.
