I am on a roll this week!
These are the first cards that I started for this week. The started as a a bag of scraps from the Rainbow Quilt that I'm making. I gave myself a challenge to use them this year. There were lots of triangles in the scrap bag and that's what led me to trees. The dots are dimensional fabric paint and I think it's the addition of dots that really make these cards extra cute. The lesson I learned on these is to add the paint dots AFTER all the cards are completely done. I did them before I fused on the backs and had to be extra careful not to ruin the paint with the heat from the iron.
I did not fuse the triangles, I just positioned them where I wanted them and stitched carefully to get them held in place. You can see this post for the stitching path that I used to do these in a continuous stitching path.
I made 30 of these cards.
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.
