It was a bit tricky and I have much more work to do as it was more difficult than I had expected. But not to bad for my first one!!!
The Go Ducks postcard was going to be just a modern artsy card, but it really lacked something!! I will show you the sequence of the cards.
|my first sketch|
|drawing the outline of the postcards|
|first two designs, the one on the left went bye bye|
|And the quilting process begins:|
|Used a fabric pen to darken the O|
|You can see my pen marks and by the magic of heat: they |
will disappear as you can see below
|Using colored pencils to color the feathers and C|
|Echo quilting, not done with the coloring but I can|
never seem to stick with one thing for very long!!
|All done with the quilting. I marked the postcard edges again and sewed|
inside the drawn edge to prepare it for cutting. That way all my quilting
stitches do not unravel!
|And after, much better!!|
|All cut and ready for the edge work.|
|And done-ready to mail!!!|
|I worked on these before work one morning|
|Son Josh gave these to me!! Nice!!!! He said they were expensive and I|
can really tell, they color really nicely.
|I painted this on to all the areas that were colored with the|
pencils to ensure the color doesn't wear off. Easy to do!!
So one of these little postcards is on its way to its new owner, sure hope she likes it!!!!
That's it for today. I need to get back out to the garden, lots of work to do out there!!!
Take care, Happy Quilting and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha
