Postcard swap

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.
