I absolutely love making and teaching Quilted Postcards. I'm not picky. I will use any fabric that works, from hand dyes to commercial prints. We had a lot of fun making them in Melfort last weekend. I chose the topic I Love Spring and someone said, 'I prefer fall.' lol And so I quickly amended the theme to be My Favourite Season. That resulted in a couple people choosing winter. So there... I'm not the only one. : )
I meant to have these ready for Mother's Day at the Boutique but life and health got in the way. I was pretty sick for 10 days. I missed celebrating my birthday and I lost my voice as well. I really hope that I didn't pass that bug on to anyone who took last weekends classes!
I really like this batch of landscapes. They were easy to do after the drive home. I was feeling so inspired. These mini landscapes are a perfect way to simplify. It was really nice to have a couple hours on the highway again. I miss that.
Now I'll pack these up and run them down to the SCC Boutique on Broadway in Saskatoon. If there's one here you particularly like, let me know quick and I can hold it back for you. I sell them for $28. The are not framed but do look terrific that way! : )

If you want to hear the radio show I was referring to in class, that is with Brandy Lynn Maslowski / Canadian Quilt Talk Radio HERE. I've linked specifically to the Postcards podcast, but she has so many to listen through as well. Brandy is from BC and was recently in Moose Jaw as a quilt judge! She also caught the Quilted Postcard bug and runs swaps now and then.
Next - to get on with awaiting commissions. I have four to get to! 2 are small and 2 are bigger. (I THANK EACH OF YOU for your patience.) Onward!
Have a lovely weekend everyone, and good health to you.
