Valentine postcards

These are Valentines postcards I make. I use a stiff interfacing for the base, The background fabric is either commercial or cut from clothing. I make the raw edge appliques and fuse them onto the background fabric. Then I quilt around each applique and edge the card with a zigzag stitch. On the back I usually use fabric cut from an old cotton pillowcase that has seen better days.

Marsha--Your Valentines are fantastic. I have made postcards and they are not the easiest to make, that's for sure! Do you make other holiday postcards?

They are fun and quick to make.

As I am cleaning up and organizing my studio I have come across fabrics that make me think of Valentines Day. Here are several that I have created in the past. They are from 2007-2010.
