Fabric Postcard from Lyn

Fabric Postcard from Lyn, (4" x 6")
Photographed by Ku'ulei

Lyn from Washington created this fabric postcard. She machine pieced five columns of striped fabric to produce the background, and added a subtle curve of fancy stitching across the surface moving in a downward diagonal direction. Two glass beads made by her daughter were added to a piece of ribbon, which is secured to the postcard with zig zag stitching. The striped ribbon adds movement and echoes the stripes in the background fabric providing unity in the piece. Thanks for the postcard, Lyn.
