FPC class

I was asked to teach a class in Fabric Postcards at my guild. There were six that day.

It was just nice to get away from everything else and sew with some guild ladies for a few hours.

We had fun and produced a few fabric postcards worthy of the name.

Rosy's Round Up

I've had an Ocean Wave quilt in my head off and on for awhile so I decided to test drive some of the colors. One or two ladies thought I was *insane* working at this scale, but it's a good way to try layouts without using a lot of fabric.

Here the pieces are placed on Steam a Seam fusible. I covered them with an applique pressing sheet to bond the fusible. They're half of a 1 and a half inch square. Which turned out to be too big for the postcard, so I cut them down even more.

But I thought the results was so cheerful. I can't wait to make the full size version!

It was a very fun day. Thanks Leslie for sharing and for being soooo patient! I know who Rosy is but who is that in the other picture?
