    Since I've never made one is there things I should know to allow? I guess I didn't know they use a paper or card stock base. Whatever is usual for making them is fine with me.

    Here is one that I learned from:
    http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpa...c_postcard.htm
    another
    http://www.dollyduo.com/Fabric%20Pos...structions.htm
    Here is a tute I found on You Tube

    These help give ideas. I still like using the heavy timtex for the stability.

    uh oh. Does this mean we should not use traditional batting? Also when we quilt them, I assume that we don't want the quilt lines showing on the back since then it wouldn't be a postcard, right? Can you tell I never did one of these before?

    If you are doing a quilted post card, you can use some muslin for the backing of your sandwich. Then you will attach your cardstock/index card/ to the back then sew on your binding. Just be careful not to make your stitch to close together otherwise will shred the card stock. Also, you could sew on your binding and finish your little quilt, then do a blanket stitch to attache the post card onto the little quilted part and can discard the index card later and enjoy the fun quilt. Always options. You could always just glue the index card on the outside onto the back of your quilt. It is acceptable. the fun part of these is that you have so many wonderful options to choose from.

    Count me in! I planned on making some this weekend.
    Don't wait for inspiration to get started - get to work and the inspiration will come.

    I made one and am contemplating another. In addition to gift tags, they make great tree ornaments!
