So I've been thinking about postcards for months now. I wanted to do a few artsy quilty ones, BUT could never figure out just what to do. It could not be something that took a lot of time....It would be good if it was new to me...So enter a blog; http://artwithaneedle.blogspot.com/ written by Kathleen Loomis. The last few days I have been reading random posts of hers. Really no logical sequence, I just sit down and click on a year and a month and look around. She did a quilt a couple years ago that I'd seen and admired at quilt festival. The exhibit, Seasonal Pallet, was fabulous and a few of the quilts have stuck in my mind. You can see them here. Kathleen did a series of blog posts about 'quilt dates' with different techniques and I decided to try one of them and make it into a postcard. Her fine lines April date was my first experiment.
I was on my own on the binding of the postcards so I did something different on each. Then on each post card I varied the thickness of the line at the edge. I have my favorite width and method now, how about you?
I can see why someone would do a series 'cause now I want to know what it would look like with narrow black lines (I used a zebra print, clearly too large scale for this small of a project.), could I make it look like something? a letter? a leaf?
