Review:

Whether you give these quick and easy projects as gifts or use them as decorations, mini postcard quilts are ideal projects for busy folks. With this simple and easy guide, anyone can learn to create unique four-by-six inch fabric cards using various sewing and quilting techniques. The authors explain how to choose the fabric and create different styles. There are color illustrated, easy to follow directions for each technique, such as appliqué. This provides no fail instructions from beginning to end. Readers can learn all about the different piecing options. The authors offer various ways to finish the edges and embellish the cards. They explain how to choose designs for the fronts and backs of the cards. There are detailed instructions for a spring birdhouse project that will have special appeal to gardeners.
This has an extensive quilt gallery with over 85 breathtaking fabric cards made with various techniques and details on how each card was created. Many of these designs feature flowers, plants, and nature themes. One of my favorites is the flower fairies card. --Connie Krochmal, Bellaonline.com
