    So how does it work that we select the holiday theme? I know the one I want to do, but do I wait till I am assigned my partner?

    I've just picked the one I want to do and surprise my partner, they find out when it shows up in the mail, but I have been asked if I have a preference. I like for my partner to do the one they would find most fun, or want to do the most, so I never have a holiday preference.

    Thanks, so I have chosen one, and found the fabric.

    Just1MoreStitcher, you can start yours anytime and when I assign partners, you can mail it out whenever u are done. i like to send it in time to celebrate the holiday but you have the whole month. don't tell us or your partner which holiday you choose, surprise them.

    Oh, I have begun. I have the holiday selected, the main theme fabric, and I am right now taking a break from pulling out fabric tubs to find the other fabrics. I found some printed post card backs from when I did some a few years ago, and have gone over the tutorial here to make sure I have it right. This is such a perfect way to get me back into the board.

    Just got done looking for (and finding) the power cord for the machine I am going to put this together so I don't have to remove the thread and bobbin from the machine I am working on a double wedding ring quilt. I am down to 5 working machines, one of which I am trying to find a home for because I have its replacement.

    Anyway, the book that had the post card back template was by Patti R Anderson and copywritten in 2000, or another from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine December 2005. Then I have one with no idea where I found it. I find lots from the internet, and I have changed computers several times since 2005.

    I did one with a printed postcard back. I found the image online and printed it onto paper. One tip if you go this route... If you iron the back of the card, put something between the paper and the iron, and don't iron, just press. If you don't, you risk smearing the printer ink, or getting a "double printing" because the ink transferred to the iron, then back onto the paper when you hit it twice. Can you tell I did this?! It was stuck to the peltex hard, so I had to glue on a blank paper (so the first one wouldn't show through), then another printed paper.

    I purchase the preprinted postcards at Holly Lobby , when I have a coupon. I also use heat and bond lite or the iron on batting. I did purchase a big postcard stamp, have not tried it on fabric.
