Vintage petal postcards
I have so many petals left from that vintage flower quilt that I decided to take some of them and make some postcards.
These are from the bag of unmatched/oddball petals; little orphan petals that had no where to go. I matched them up by color groups and arranged some little blossoms. Wasn't it nice of the lady who made these to baste them all for me?
No hand blanket stitching here! This is a job for the machine and it makes a mighty fine blanket stitch.
I even did a simple straight stitch edge which is unusual for me. But I felt that a black satin stitch would be way too much black.
Six postcards of no-longer-orphaned petals!
Today my kayaking friend and I are taking our first kayaking trip to lake Anna (about 45 minutes from here). Hopefully we will not roast in the heat. I'm packing lots of water and sunscreen.

Your unmatched/oddball petals look good with the light blue background. Ooh, kayaking. That is on my bucket list.

VERY good use of those orphan petals - VERY nice! Have fun kayaking. It is so hot and humid here, we've decided to stay indoors today.
