More Quilted Postcards

 I've been making quilted postcards for my Etsy store and for the postcard exchange groups I belong to. Lots of fun to make these little gems!!!






I bought this little frame (4" X 6") and the postcards fit perfectly in them!!! Great for a gift :^)



I've got a few more in the works too!!!

Happy Quilting friends, Take care and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha

  2. Those are really great. Your binding with thread is perfect. I have tried to get my machine to sew nice like that but no luck. What kind of thread or stitch do you use..if I can ask?

    1. Hi Kris! Thanks for the comment!! So I use at least a 40 wt thread if possible, often I will use the regular sewing thread made by Coats and Clark. I do a regular wider zigzag stitch first, then do a satin stitch at least 3-4 times around the edge. That's why it looks so nice. I go around until everything is covered well!!!

  3. They are beautiful!! I have to make one for this summers fund raiser for Wendy's Wish. One of the fabric companies donates 2 pieces of fabric and then you add your own...a select few are chosen for framing and are auctioned off...it is an amazing event! if you are interested here is the link!

  4. These are adorable :) Is there a way to stamp them and send them through the mail? Just curious, because I am pen pals with one of my granddaughters:)
    Keep Smiling,

    1. You can mail them, the stamps the post office puts on them seem to stick just fine. I put my postcards in a clear envelope and the stamp goes on that, also with no problems!!!
