Letters Home

"Letters Home"
This 5x7 crazy quilt piece displays fabric images of postcards from Paris.
Thank you to Anita of My Country Cottage Garden blog who discovered the postcards on a trip to Paris, and was kind enough to send me these scans! I was so pleased and could hardly wait to incorporate them into a cq piece. I think it has a very soft romantic look to it.
Click on picture to see detail. This is listed on eBay this week.

I love also the colors and the whole idea.Anita is a lovely friend. Hey, your still inside doing crafts...when will you start gardening? We had a wonderful weather +21 C but it will be colder again. My tulips and daffodills are not blooming yet. How about yours?

OK, I'm lost, how do you get from scanned postcard to the image being on cloth? Maybe you could give me a clue? It is a dreamy piece. Very nice.

I see I am back on the list. Tee hee. Pays to whine.

Cat - I haven't been by in awhile but just thought I would pop by and tell you that: I have been on the back of the Harley! - it is on my blog... I cannot believe I was brave enough, but boy, I am loving it!
