A Postcard Package

Have you ever seen a quilted postcard in person? I have seen them in many magazines, such as Quilting Arts and Artful Blogging. I always thought they were beautiful mini art.

This lovely quilted postcard showed up in my mailbox yesterday, courtesy of my friend Kim who won one of my fabric giveaways in May.

  • I’ve never seen a quilted postcard, what a great idea. the possibilities are endless…

  • How sweet of her! I’ve never seen one up close either, but they look really fun to make!

  • What a sweet thought! And the card is lovely!

  • So cute-I’ve considered making quilted cards and such but haven’t gotten that far yet. I seem to fill up my time with “stuff” and don’t get the creative projects done like I’d like.

    Found your comment on Lindamade. You have a lovely blog.

  • I’m glad you like it, it was fun to make. The postcard and journal (11″X14″ or 8″ X 10″) quilts are great to practice your free motion quilting on and something you can finish rather quickly.

    Happy Quilting!!!

  • What a cool idea! I’ve never seen anything like it!

  • What a thoughtful gift! I’ve seen patterns for quilted postcards but have never seen one made up!

  • How awesome is that. Some people don’t even bother emailing me to say they received their giveaway prize which is fine I guess but how nice of Kim to send you a thank you postcard. 🙂
    I have seen them before in Artful Blogging and thought of making some myself, just haven’t had the time.

  • I love the postcard! I only heard about these recently and decided they would be wonderful little surprises to send to people, e.g., my daughter away at college, my best friend in another state, my mother-in-law. And that was a wonderful way to say, “thank you.” If I ever win a giveaway, I’m going to have to make a quilted postcard thank you, too.
