I've done several postcards, but Bonnie has a different method for doing them which was awesome to learn!!
Her book was available for purchase, which I did of course.
|She had oodles of kits available for purchase too!!! OH my Goodness!! It was hard to contain myself!!!!!|
|I did buy a few kits to work on, love them!!!|
|Here's Bonnie working with Cathie!|
|My card in progress|
|Lisa's beautiful dragonfly card|
|More cards in the works|
|Everyone busy at work|
|Flo working hard on her postcard, and her lovely card below, gorgeous!!!|
If you ever have a chance to take a class from Bonnie, do it. She is such a lovely kind person and full of awesome ideas for making postcards from fabric. She loves novelty prints, and now I know what I can do with mine!!! Awesome!!!

So here is how I finished my card.
|I used Sulky variegated thread for the edges.|
|First I do a regular zigzag to hold it all together|
|Then I do a wide, the same as the zigzag, satin stitch. I did this one twice around the whole postcard. Sometimes I will do three layers. It just makes a really nice edge!!!|
|The back ready for address and note and stamp|
|And the front again. Love Frida Kahlo. We saw her work at the the Phoenix Art Museum. I had read up on her before seeing her work, so it was an awesome experience seeing it in real life. WOW!!!|
Well, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the Postcards and information!!! Take Care, Happy Quilting and keep those scissors sharp!! Martha
