Postcard exchange

Not a lot of quilting going but I did manage to make the next postcard for our family postcard exchange. October's theme is Halloween but I much prefer an Autumn theme. Luckily, our *rules* allows you to either use the theme or choose your own.

The sunflower is from the book Ribbon Embroidery Bible - I love that whole series of *bible* books - Embroidery, Quilting, Ribbon Embroidery - I have them all.

As a reminder for those interested, I did post the postcard instructions I made up for the family on my MaryQuilts.com site.

Wow, Mary. That is beautiful. I love sunflowers and have never gotten into ribbon embroidery but I think I might now. Thanks for sharing.

That's so pretty! When you make those to exchange, do you make yourself one to keep too? What do you do with them all? They're truly a work of art!
