Sunflower 2--Fabric Postcard

(Sunflower 2, Fabric Postcard, 4" x 6")

This postcard is going to Judy of Utah. The stem and leaves were machine appliqued onto the postcard. The center of the flower was made by fusing fabric onto a circle of Pellon Peltex 72. The petals--made by crocheting a short length of variegated fancy yarn--were attached to the underside of the center of the flower with zig zag stitching. With its petals attached, the center of the flower was stitched to its stem. The postcard is free motion quilted and embellished with Swarovski crystals.

I received a postcard from Hanna of Austria yesterday. Thanks, Hanna!
