Fiber postcards - Snowmen

 

I participated in a winter-themed postcard swap.  My cards are like real little quilts, with fused surface fabrics, a thin layer of batting, quilting, Peltex to make it stiff, fabric backing, and the card is satin-stitched around the edges.  On these I also did free-motion stitching of the word "Winter" - going over it three times to make it visible.  I was surprised, in this swap, to receive in trade three cards that didn't involve padding or quilting, but I guess "fiber postcard" isn't, by definition, a "quilted postcard."

I wonder if there is a "quilted postcard" exchange anywhere out there...
