When Life Gives You Scraps ...


I swore I was not joining any more postcard swaps for a while, but, what can I say? I'm weak! A swap came up to use scraps - so I challenged myself to use only the somewhat small bag of scraps I have which already had the fusible on them. Many of them are from the "Falling Leaves" quilt I recently completed. These two are my favorites. I did not really plan ahead to do a sun pattern, but the pieces needed something and the triangles seemed to be it. I like how they came out, and I really do like this combo of fabrics. They are on their way to the UK and New Zealand. Can't wait to see what comes to me in return!

Are you from the USA? I see the statue of Liberty in your postcards, and sending them to other countries is perfect!

Yes, I am (guess I should fill out my profile!) - how interesting! I never thought of that, but I love the connection. Thanks!

You are really getting great at abstract design - something I really need to work at.
I love the sun and the fabric choices!

YOU are my inspiration.
