Artist's Trading Card Swap!!

I joined up Ali's Textile ATC Swap!  

How could I resist??  

I have my partner assigned to me and while waiting to pick up children from school I tried making one...

Ok it is fairly basic - just a bit of FMQ but it only took a few minutes.  It is the wrong size for the swap but I sort of like it.   Seed-podish I thought.  Hence the name I've given it....








Maybe for the real thing it would need further embellishment.  Waiting for Ali to allow me into the Flickr group and I'll post it and see what reaction I get.

In case you want to make one - it should be 2.5" x 3.5" - a very mini quilt if you like.  I think this could be addictive....forget moo cards...ATCs are the new me.

  1. I love the stitching! maybe add a fine border of purple? Or 'colour in' the seeds with another coloured thread? Good luck with it! You are a do-er!

  12. Like a small mug rug? I stick stamps on them and post them to #1 daughter so she gets nice post! And can use it as a coaster (I know, she's a student, so no chance!)
