Quilted Postcard Mug Rug

Always have to be different… That is ME!!

As I was making this quilted postcard for my exchange partner, I knew two things.

  • It would NOT be mailed directly through the postal system. Too much work for it to be possibly damaged or soiled. No way!!
  • I wanted it bigger than the standard 4″ by 6″ postcard. Wider and longer.

So… I made a Postcard Mug Rug instead.

I put a “stamp” on the postcard just for fun. How cool is this!! Abe Lincoln on a 3 cents stamp. I found it while searching for something I could use to put in the top right corner. I used Transfer Paper to iron the image on the muslin. My first time using transfer paper.

Shhh.. my exchange partner’s name is Linda. I don’t think she reads my blog so I believe it is safe to post photos here. And if she does see this before she receives it in the mail, then Happy Valentine’s Day, Linda. :D

So, this is going in the mail tomorrow. Deadline met, one day ahead. Oh, BTW, I met my Spool Blocks deadline too. Gone, out the door, last week.

Two deadlines down. Two to go. My bead challenges. More on those later.
