    I keep hearing about these but I don't know what they are. Can someone explain or give me a link to a definition?

    They are small quilted cards that you can send through the mail. This link also has a link to a tutorial on making them.

    At least that's my understanding. Welcome to the board. This is a great group of people and very helpful.

    Yes everyone has been very helpful. And I have so many questions. Everywhere I look I see a quilt I want to do and then it's all about finding the directions and then there are more questions and it just keeps happening.

    How funny...I was going to ask about the postcards but you beat me to it. I keep hearing about them but wasn't sure how to go about it. I love the tutorial!

    I've made quite a few postcards and have had no problem with the mail. I use 1st class postage, and don't forget to write POSTCARD on the top back.
