My Post Card

I finally tried it! I made a fabric post card! It was so much fun. Our quilt guild had a color challenge. We each drew a color out of a pot and then drew a color scheme out of another pot. I picked out Yellow Green and my color scheme was analogous, so my colors were yellow green, green, blue green, and blue. I was so lucky. That was no challenge. I had fun just playing with fabric for weeks. The challenge was choosing something to make. The rules were that we had to use our colors and we could add black, white or gray (neutrals). We had 3 months to do the challenge and of course I waited till the last week to do it! We could make anything we wanted. It didn't have to be a quilt. I did find a quilt called onion rings that I wanted to make in those colors but due to the time crunch I came up with something better. I sat down at 10:00 p.m. and by 11:00 p.m. I had a quilt pieced, quilted and bound. I was so proud. It was only 4"x6" though. :o) My son Joe is into drawing fish so I had him draw me some fish and I chose one I could do and made this post card. I love it! I won't put my bad instructions here but follow the like I put in there and get her instructions. They are awesome. Very well put together.
