I started these cards before I got sick and they just needed a little finishing. I was able to get that done yesterday.
These scraps from the Maine applecore quilt (that is only cut out at this point) were haunting me. There's too much good stuff here to throw them out and, you know, that means postcards or placemats....or both!
I had these screen printed dragonflies and some autumnal hand dyed braid. Well that just screams for crazy quilted postcards and that's what I did.
The braid added a nice element. Well, I think it does anyway. The wavy braid in the middle is the same as the flat braid with one of the threads pulled. This is YLI Quilt Highlights and I love working with it. I even bought a Christmasy metallic one to use for some holiday cards.
I usually don't like variegated threads for edging but, in this case, I think it works perfectly. These cards will be for our Airbnb guests.
