I belong to a group on Facebook.
We trade Free Motion Quilted Postcards
This is my June card that was recently mailed to California :^)
I really didn't have a plan and time was running out.
I looked at some fabric and just went with it

I love it!!
The flower is all fused, leftovers from another
project. I always draw the outline of the
postcard on my piece so I know where to quilt.
Free Motion Quilting, no specific design
I decided so scribble the flower center
The back
Edge stitching. I get a really nice edge by doing a simple wide zigzag to keep it
all together, then I do a satin stitch a minimum of three times around the
piece. More if needed.
I decided to do an orange blanket stitch on the edge and
I think I like the result!!!
And this is the postcard I got in the mail the same day
mine was posted!!! Brilliant minds think similarly!!

Take Care, Happy Quilting, and keep those needles sharp!! Martha
