Maine scrap cards #2
I've got so much stuff to get done over the next 2 weeks that I can't really concentrate on a big project. Playing with the Maine quilt scraps a little each day is the perfect recess from work.
I have several fabrics that I had screen printed a long time ago and these images make a perfect focal point for the cards. I showed how I made these last week. I finished them off with some variegated Vandani thread that I bought YEARS ago. I think the variegated thread on the edge is what really makes these cards.
I made 10 of these and I have enough fabric scraps left for at least 20 more. It seems a little nuts to make that many cards but it will give me a nice stash for our Airbnb guest for the year. There's no reason for out Virginia visitors to know that these fabrics were created with foliage in Maine!
I made the first set of postcards from these scraps back in November and they have already all been given away.

Looks like I'll have to book myself a few nights at your AirBnB just to qualify for one of these lovelies! Simply spectacular!

I think these are just pure fun! If I were staying at an AirBnB and was given something like this, I would certainly keep it - and remember the place and the hosts fondly.

Pretty postcards! What a lovely token to take home to remind a visitor of their trip to VA.
