ATC Swap

Enjoyed making these  jewels for  www.quiltinggallery.com ATC swap.  Something about working small that sparks my creativity. I often try new techniques that I may want to use in future projects.

For the ATC's I will be sending to my secret partner I chose "Celebrations" as a theme, Christmas, Independence, Earth, and Halloween Day cards.  I've been playing around with fusing plastic bags like the kind you get at the grocery store  and made my backgrounds for the cards from the plastic bags. After fusing  the bags with the iron  I painted them with acrylic paint and cut them down to the required 2.5 x.3.5 size.

                                  ATC's  for my secret partner

4 patch block ATC's my partner sent to me.

The begin of summer is right around the corner and I am thinking watermelons. I just love them and decided to make a
watermelon quilt for the "Food for Body and Soul " charity quilt project . End of the month finish date for this quilt and my wholecloth quilt
Prairie Wildflowers .

Peace, love, and art,
