1000 Postcards for Peace -- #2 With Thanks

I was away for half of June and desperately needed to put thread on fabric.  It just feels wrong when I don't quilt, y'know?

I grabbed a pack of bright InvisiFil threads:

I really wanted bright-yet-subtle quilting on white fabric and this package of 100-weight polyester thread fit the bill!

I threw a Deco-Bob bobbin in my Sweet Sixteen and started stitching some of my favorite quilting motifs in some of my favorite colors

After I stitched the motifs, I echoed everything with lime green thread:

When I had quilted enough fabric, I cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" section to make a postcard by fusing it onto stabilizer:

I satin-stitched the edge with FabuLux In The Pinks because... well... pink!

I sent this card as a much-overdue thank you note to a family member.

Hi Debby! I wish I'd known you were going to be in Ohio, I would have driven to take a class! As it is, I'm headed to Emmitsburg, MD to the MAQ weekend there. Every time the Quilt Basket has an event, my slave driver has me booked already, but I do miss seeing you! Thank you for the great newsletter, the post cards are a fantastic idea! The USPS doesn't mind sending them? Too cute!
