My Whimsical Garden

I wanted to learn how to applique better & found this quilt - My Whimsical Garden by Piece o'Cake in 2014.  Using my stash I worked on it and finally finished it in 2016.  I had entered it in the Gimli/Interlake Quilt Show in August 2016 and finished it 2 days before the show!

I machine pieced, hand appliqued, and free motion quilted the top (edging in the squares and pebbles in the border.  I received 2nd place for People's Choice Award & $50 gift certificate at local quilt shop - very unexpected, but delightful!!

It measures 75" length x 65" width.  It now hangs in our cottage in Hecla!

Postmark'd Art 2016

These are the four postcards I completed for Round 25 of Postmark'd Art - No Theme/Summer

I had taken these photos with my macro lens and printed on fabric.  Rather disappointed with the colour quality that came from the printing on fabric - will have to work on this, if I do it again.

The postcards are 6" x 4" fabric postcards & all 4 went to the USA.  I mailed them September 13. 2016
