Two new Free motion quilted Postcards-done!! Ready to mail

Two more postcards done and ready to mail. I love how they turned out!!! I quilted them with my Aurifil 2315-Pale Flesh and edge stitched with this gorgeous Aurifil thread-2340-Cafe' Au Lait!! I love it!! I also used a rubber bird stamp that I found at Hobby Lobby and a black ink stamp pad!

So, the fabric did start out looking like this. I played with some Crayola crayons!!! Here is a photo of what the fabric looked like before I started and what it ended up looking like after I played with melted crayons and freezer paper flowers!!! It was a LOT of FUN!!!!!!
Before and After

One of these little gems will soon be on it's way to
Malaga Spain!!
I decided to use some of the same fabric that I began with
on the front-before crayons-for the back!! Then used
my postcard stamp, and done!!

 I am thankful for Aurifil for their lovely threads that allow me to incorporate color and design into my creations, and Crayola for their amazing, safe, crayons.

Take care everyone, Happy Quilting, and keep those seam rippers sharp!!! I use mine A LOT!!! :^)
