Christmas Postcards

Merry Christmas!  Each year, I design and create my own Christmas cards.  In the previous years, they consisted of cardstock and lots of glue.  With my growing interest in quilting, I took a new venture this year with quilted postcards.  With a response from my Help Wanted Post in October, I received some great tips from quilt bloggers.  Additionally, Viki Welsh’s blog had some great tips too!

My design this year was a ‘Silent Night’ with a single Christmas Tree lit up by a single star.  With Christmas fast approaching, my husband was recruited to be my elf this week.  Without his help of basting the Christmas trees and being an expert at pinning these mini-quilts, the quilted postcards would not have been completed.  (Thanks Jim!)

Help Wanted: Quilted Postcards

I had lots of random scraps of batting and have seen many examples of adorable quilted postcards.  Thus, I spent time cutting these scraps into over 100 6″ x 4″ rectangles.  My goal (note, the word goal) is to create quilted postcards for the holidays.  As I have been searching online for a tutorials, I was curious to know if anyone had some great tips for these postcards.  Please share!
