    Quilted Postcards

    Here are five postcards I made out of the same fabric!! All are a bit different with the different threads used. I also used crayola crayons to highlight the feathers. The cards measure 4" X 6" and four have been sent in the mail and arrived safely!!! Not in envelopes!! Their destinations were: Germany, Liverpool UK, Wisconsin, Phoenix AZ.

    beautiful.
    great way for us all to practice fmq feathers. i'd love one of those.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    they are beautiful, especially the second one down. the varigated thread color just "sings" ... love it! but, i have wondered every time i see someone post quilted post cards ---can you really mail them? what are the special proceedures needed to ensure they are still beautiful when they arrive at thier destination?

    Yes, you can mail them. Some prefer mailing them in a clear envelope, that way they don't get dirty. I mail mine without and take the risk. So far, all the postcards I have gotten have been just fine. Some of the members of the postcard group I am in call the dirt "postal art". Either way is fine. On the back you put a line down the middle and I write postcard top center. Then take it to the postoffice to mail. If there are embellishments on it, you have them handstamp which is a little more money. I got a gorgeous beaded postcard and it arrived perfectly without an envelope!!!
