 Kindred Spirits Fabric Postcard, 4" x 6"
© 2012 Fannie Narte

An easy fabric postcard to make using my Kindred Spirits fabric panel.

SIMPLE "HOW TO" INSTRUCTIONS:

Make a quilt sandwich: Fabric Panel, batting and medium weight stabilizer (I use Pellon).  Quilt it, embellish it, add text.  If adding beads, add it after all quilting and stitching is done.  Trim to 4" x 6".

Fuse backing fabric to above unit and trim to size.  Finish edges with your favorite binding.  You're Finished!

I added the following free motion stitched text to my postcard: love, joy, friends and kindred spirits.  The wings were embellished with angelina fibers.  The edges were finished with two rounds of zig zag stitching and one round of  repeated straight stitch using black thread. 

Make one . . . frame it or send it to one of your kindred spirits . . .

Have fun!
