The Queen of Hearts
Our Quilts Around The World group is hosting a challenge. I am to make four or more (depending on number in group who sign up) quilted postcards (4" X 6") with the theme being: "Any interpretation of a playing card from the traditional playing deck." No one said don't post them early! Here is my first one! Meet "The Queen Of Hearts"! She'd done on off white muslin, drawn lightly in ink, then top sewn and painted using Jacquard TeeJuice fineliner for fabric pens (purple, red, and yellow; yellow felt crown, glitter glue (gold); and fancy sewing machine heart stitches (hair and border); satin stitched around the edges. I will add some clean muslin to the back for the address as cloth postcards can be sent "naked" in the mail! But right now the stitches show the same picture as the front and looks cool that way too. ;-) [click to see details] DH and I had a date for dinner and Irish Music last night. To see the details see post I published late last night below: Includes drawings.
