Because I have recently returned to Crazy Quilting, I chose EMBELLISH as my word for this theme.
I pieced four naked blocks in the Crazy quilting style
I scanned and printed the word “embellish” on fabric then appliquéd this to the blocks.
I then proceeded to lightly embellish the blocks using various forms of embellishment: SRE, beads, braid, shisha.
I chose to minimise the amount of embellishment on each card because I am aware of the dangers that fairly flat and thin postcards face when travelling through the postal system, even when lightly protected by a cello sleeve.
And finally! A couple of days after drafting the above notes I’m ready to add photos of the four completed postcards.
Three will enter the postal system tomorrow and the fourth will stay “home” with me.
Which three are going travelling?? That remains a secret.
I hope the recipients enjoy what they receive
