Postcard Greetings & More

My first attempt at making a quilted postcard.
Remember the Paris quilt block exchange at my Local Quilt Shop? We’re sending postcards to our block sisters next. I’ve never made quilted postcard before. It took me nearly all afternoon to figure this out! But… it was fun. And now I wish I had time to make a few more. Though, it’s not like I need another project to distract me!
I made a downloadable pdf file for the address side of the postcard if you want to try your hand at making one.
I can hear “tutorial?!?” echoing across the Internet. Since I didn’t want to re-invent the wheel, I did a quick search on the web. Here are a couple of links to tutorials. Enjoy!
