I finished the postcard wallhanging last night. I really like it. :o) I used rather dull fabrics - a mottled blue, black, and cream so the wallhanging doesn't detract from the beauty of the cards. I wanted them to be the focus of this quilt.
I wasn't quite sure how to quilt this so I just winged it. I quilted straight lines in the thin sashings, put a heart motif in the wider sashings, made a simple criss cross in the windows, and meandered the outer border. Again, I didn't want to try anything fancy as the postcards are the stars here.
I want to thank everyone who visited my blog today as a result of the One World - One Heart event. I have accumulated quite a few names for my drawing and hope to see many more before the 14th. I browsed a few blogs of the participants and wowsa!, there are some talented artists here in blogland.
Today I worked on the beginning of some St. Patrick's Day postcards for a swap on Art We Mail. I wanted to get the machine sewing done so I can do the beading and handwork while watching the Superbowl tomorrow.
Tonight I plan to start sewing on Bonnie's scrappy bargello. Doncha just love the weekend? Time to sew!
