Last week I shared my blue Shibori Sea postcards. When I was pulling out the scraps to make them I could lots of other colors of "sky" fabrics and got a little carried away. But I use my postcards so fast that making a lot of these simple designs wasn't a bad idea. Each set is simple: sky fabric (all are leftover postcard backing fabrics), sea Shibori fabric, yarn horizon and one element in the sky. I added a gull in the blue cards. In this one I used a metallic thread to stitch a hint of clouds in the sky.
I have 2 sewing machines in my sewing room. One is all set up for postcards and the other is set up for making dog blocks. I can sit down to work on either project without having to move anything. My mood can dictate what I work on.
I only made a couple of these cards because I only had two pieces of the sky fabric. But I'm really happy with how they turned out. I'm calling them Autumn Sea.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
