A long long time ago I made enough quilt blocks for a log cabin quilt.…
When Saftler’s Fall Class Schedule came out a few weeks back I got inspired. I decided that Lois, Sharon, Wendy and I should take a class together. Not a big ass commitment or anything but something fun and quick – a way for us to learn something together and maybe help us not miss Debbie so much. And lo and behold there was a class that was just the thing – A Quilted Postcard Class. Never mind that not one of us knew what a quilted post card was, the day and time of the class worked for everyone and that’s really all that mattered. So Lois signed us up and last Wednesday night we all met at Saftlers to take this class together.
I’ll admit that at first I didn’t really get it. Quilted? Postcard? Huh? But once I looked through the instructor’s scrapbook of postcards, well, I got a teeny bit inspired.
I gathered my supplies. Luckily, Lois brought a whole container full of landscape type fabric scraps to share.
I cut out fabric and fused it into place with Steam a Seam.
I embellished. And did a bit of quilting.
In the end I wound up with a cute postcard of some mountains. And a sheep. It’s a sweet little reminder of my trip to Utah. And no, I’m not mailing it.
