Quilted Art Postcards

Newly Finished Postcards

I just finished these three postcards. They had been partially constructed for a class I taught for the Upper Grand District School Board Continuing Education Department.

Red Flower Postcard

This flower was created from a hexagon. The hexagon was folded in half so that a little of the lining shows. It was then folded in half width wise and a tuck was stitched to create its shape. The leaves and stem are fused and stitched to add dimension.

I love the colour purple! I improvisationally pieced a few small pieces to create the background. Some free motion quilting and a silver foil piece with beads adds interest.

Broken Heart Postcard

This broken heart is made with a red and gold lame fabric and a red cotton. It’s fused and free motion quilted onto a black cotton sateen with a metallic thread.

I love making these miniature quilts. They are quick to make and are a great way to try out new techniques.

Enjoy!
