New Postcards

Last Sunday was my demo day at the gallery. They ask several of the artists to come in and talk or demonstrate their art. Last year I showed how I create a quilt from photo to pattern to finish, so this year I decided I needed to actually sew something.

Taking the agapanthus quilt to work on was out of the question because of size, so I decided to make some fabric postcards reminiscent of my Hana Bamboo quilt that is in the show. I came up with this:

And this:

I made a similar card for Nellie Durand last year for the Art Swap exchange.

The background fabric gives me lots of other ideas, too, but they'll have to wait. The agapanthus is calling me!

Dianna, It's amazing how such simplicity can be so visually complex. These have amazing depth. I love my card and will post about the art share meme objects after I receive the last one.
