    When making quilted post cards. Do you use a regular post card and quilt over it?

    I used a stiff fusible interfacing and just used plain white cotton on the reverse :D I did try using a postcard but prefered just using all fabric, I made the front, then bonded it to the interfacing, bonded the backing on and stitched around the edges to finish off like this :D

    There are perfectly rectangular 4 x 6", it's the camera lens that distorts the edges :roll:
