Sheila's Valentine Postcard Swap

It is OK now to show you the fabric postcards I made as a participant in Sheila's PostCard Swap.  The three postcards I made and sent have been received and enjoyed.

This one was sent to Eglea in Brazil ... I tried my hand at a little lettering in Portugese.

This one I made for Judy in Boise, Idaho

And Judy made this one and sent it to me...She handpainted the background fabric.  So cool!

I made this one for Jeanneke in Holland...her birthday is on Valentine's Day.

I enjoy making postcards and then sending them all over the world. Oh yes, and so nice to receive them as well!  It is such fun to open your mailbox and see a little piece of fabric art.  Each one is unique and very thoughtful.  Thanks so much to Sheila for taking the time to coordinate all the swappers.  You rock!
I enjoy it so much, that I will be hosting a Fabric Postcard Workshop at my house on Sunday (weather permitting).  I offered up this class to my lovely little guild to help with some skill mastering  and also to maybe pass along my excitement for making these little beauties.

Hope you get a chance to do something quilty today!
