TMQG Postcard Swap – Part 2

The presidents of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild suggested we do a fun min-activity since the guild doesn’t meet during July and August. I signed up to make three postcards and will receive three back.

The second postcard I created for the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild swap also used the hand dyed fabric scraps from Laura Wasilowski of Artfabrik.

This tiny house emerged from the scraps with a trellis waiting for flowers.

Embroidery floss and hand dyed perle cotton stitches are added to bring out the personality of the house.

The finished pieces is layered with a stiff fusible interfacing and finished with a satin stitch around the edges in a variegated thread.

The next postcard for the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild swap uses a different technique and I know my recipient will recognize the fabrics. Stay tuned for the next quilted art postcard I made for the swap,
