More Post Cards

I'm having some fun taking a break from the art quilt I'm making. Here's another PC I made. The background I already had ready. I made it quite awhile ago and now I added stitching and hearts. I used turned under applique for the hearts.

You Gotta Have Love

This PC is made from a lace heart I got in the garment district last year. I added some dyes, paints and then embossed it with Mistyfuse. The background is hand dyed silk and I added some french knots and beads to accent. You can click on to enlarge and see the embossed silver. Looks pretty cool.

Quilting in the Limelight

For those of you who love Philippa Naylor's work. She has a new book out. I've just ordered it. It is called "Quilting in the Limelight". You can't get it from amazon. But, you can get it here.

I took a class with Philippa last year and she has so many tips and tricks for you to make your quilt look great. I'm looking forward to her piping illustrations. Her quilts were so well made and beautiful. I learned a lot in one short class. I think even just for eye candy this book will be great.
