Back to School

That was the theme for my latest postcard swap.  Now, granted, it's been a few years since I was in school . . . but I remember how much I loved buying new supplies at the beginning of the year!  MMMM, the smell of brand new crayons!


Well, back to postcards.  I used my Bernina's programmed alphabets to stitch ABCs on a piece of fabric.



Then I practiced some free motion quilting.  Do these look like apples?  Even some of them???







Then I cut and fused some items from a school-themed print.  In fact they are from one of the Loralie fabrics . . .I'll save the ladies for another project.


and here are two finished postcards with a few cute buttons added and a zigzag stitch edging.  One of these is on it's way to my partner now.

Very cute! I've used the Loralie ladies on postcards myself. They work great.

Great work. If not apples, then may pumpkins? It's the right time of year for each.
