From Across the Border

Heather, a Canadian blogging friend at Books and Quilts, recently had a giveaway and sent me this luscious fabric that she had used in a fabric challenge on her blog. You can see the wonderful blocks that were made by the participants in this post here.

As a thank you to Heather, I made this selvage postcard for her using the selvages from the fabric she sent. (I'm getting quite predictable with the thank you cards I send nowadays).

If you'd like to make some of these yourself, a PDF version of my postcard tutorial is available on my blog's sidebar.

Thank you, Heather!

Oh Anya, I look each day that I sew at your lovely card you sent me!
There isn't another that I could make that would give me the joy of receiving yours that day when I opened the mail.
