Free Motion Quilting Post Card
For those that are interested in making postcards from their FMQ samples I will try to show you how easy it is to do. Here is my sample I am going to use.
This was my Tiles sample from July that AngelaWalters taught at Sew Cal Gal. Click on names to find out more.
Next I rough cut my piece to about 4 ½” x 6 ½”
Also cut a piece of muslin and with my stiff inside (I am using Floriani Stitch and Shape double side fusible) I have used a heavy interfacing and steam a seam in the past.
Next, I ironed my muslin to the back of the stabilizer
and my sample to the front side.
Then I trim my post card to 4” x 6”
Next I satin stitched around the edge with a narrow stitch.
I then stitch around it again once or twice with a wider satin stitch. It doesn’t have to be done this way. It is just how I do it.
I then do any final details.
And then finish the back.
