Quilting Arts magazine had a challenge called 'Staycation', where you had to make a postcard reflecting what you did at home this summer. I started with some hand dyed upholstery fabric. In this picture you can really see the fabulous texture. I cut out the parts that I liked the best.
I sewed them together and then did some free motion quilting around the outside and a couple flowing lines in the middle.
I spent the rest of the time beading. When I finished beading I applied Timtex and a back layer and stitched around the outside. I will pop it in the mail and hope it gets there on time.
