Postcard swap

I’ve just taken part in my first postcard swap – organised by Patty at Elm Street Quilts.

We were asked to give an inspiration word, and this is how my partner Natalia interpreted mine, which was ‘water’.


Isn’t it lovely?!  My postcard is proudly displayed on a shelf in my sewing room, and I will treasure it.

Diane’s  inspiration word to me was ‘turquoise’ so I decided to make one of Tartan Kiwi’s birds with a turquoise wing.

This bird is a Rifleman, and the first in Tartan Kiwi’s On the Wire Pattern Club series.  It’s a lovely pattern, and I’m looking forward to making the others.

  1. These are both beautiful postcards. How did you manage to put a binding on your little postcard? It is so interesting to see how people interpret the word, isn’t it.

  2. I love your bird. Tartankiwi’s birds are so gorgeous and you chose lovely colors for your partner. Your partner was very clever with her interpretation of your prompt. Beautiful, both of them.
