Fabric Postcards–Voices in Cloth 2018

25 08 2017

The Postcard Group is gearing up for helping our guild members make at least 2000 postcards as a fund-raising effort for our guild’s upcoming quilt show in March of 2018.  Previous East Bay Heritage Quilters Voices in Cloth shows have been fabulous (of course I say this, but they really are!!), and our postcards have been a big hit.

Two new updates to the postcard-making process for our guild members.  We have listened to you and are hoping to make this effort easier in the following two ways:

Starting:  We will begin to provide pre-made bases for your designs, since some members had difficulty getting started.  We hope these will appeal to you and inspire further embellishment, stitching, or whatever you feel like adding.

Some of these bases look like this:

Sample bases

Finishing:  We will fuse and edge-stitch your postcards for you if you like.  Simply turn in the finished postcard tops, and we have volunteers who will do the rest.

Here are a few of the cards that have been turned in so far:

Made by me.  As usual, I could not resist making as many as possible from a small scrap of donated fabric:

 

And other anonymous ones;  if you are the artist, let me know and I will included your name here.

Much more to show you in the weeks/months to come.
