Postcard from America

This postcard arrived today all the way from America. It was made at my request by my internet friend, Lynne, in return for me sending her a pattern for the quilt I designed last year for the Triple F challenge for my local quilt club. Pretty cool eh? It is satin-stitched all around the edges - I'm impressed!

I have visions of getting postcard from all over the world in exchange for patterns I have designed. Since I have only designed a couple that are in pattern form I think it will be a while (like decades) before my vision is realised don't you think??

PS: I forgot to say that the postcard is dated 14 Feb and today is 20 Feb, so it took less than a week to get here. That is pretty good.

What a lovely postcard! I'd say 6 days turnaround is pretty good, indeed!

It is always fun to get something quilty in the mail, and when it is from another country, it makes it even more special.

What will you do with your collection of postcards Helen? You'll have to build more walls.... Its pretty cool, to think of all those tiny works of art arriving in the mail.
