The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Posts Tagged ‘Postcard quilts

I’m happily playing with my postcards and will post the new ones.  I do have a confession to make though- I have become obsessed!  I am making a large quilt that needs 1/4″ square triangles, lots of them.  Since I can’t do much more than sit in my lounge chair (I’m doing so well…), I sat yesterday cutting off all the dog ears.  I had this nice huge pile on my work surface and they were all green.  I started handling them and was struck with the idea of making some snippet postcards, too.  as I’m playing, my husband is cleaning the kitchen and brings me 2 handfuls of scraps from the floor and asks me what to do with them.  I begged him to save me from myself and he should throw everything out right away so I don’t have to agonize about how small a piece I should save. Let’s face it: it is getting ridiculous!  How small to YOU keep?  And better yet, for how long and do you really every use it all up????

I’ve been making more postcards for this trading group I joined- “Trading Fabric Post Cards”- a group of 25 people who from all over the world who has to also send out 25 postcards. There is no fee and no rules. If you would like to sign up, just google quilted postcard trading group. I still have these in my possession (past the due date) bec. big cities are quite uncooperative in hand stamping… If the fabric postcards were to go through the machine it can be damaged. By me, they charge .44 cents, then .20 cent fee, then $1 for each handstamp!
As an aside, Sew Materialistic offers free postcard workshops, where everyone just sits and sew postcards- lots of fun!
