Get Well Soon....Fabric Postcard


What do you do when you hear that a quilting group friend has been diagnosed with a serious illness and has just undergone surgery to have a kidney removed?

Send quilted blessings, of course!

Shown here:
My quickly made quilted post card with prayers for her speedy recovery and the hopes for better days ahead. I made this in between other projects and sent it off in the mail. If you've never made a fabric postcard, it's as easy as a 4" x6" pieced top, simple quilting, a stiff backing fabric or card stock. This could have had a real stamp on it and been mailed, but I choose to put it in an envelope, so I could enclose an additional get well note.

  1. It's a great postcard Michele! That is something I've yet to try. As with many things I let my head turn it into a bigger challenge than it is *VBS* Thanks for sharing yours and the link! Hugs, Finn
    P.S. Aren't you glad I added that X-tra aspect to our Challenge...LOL?
