Birthday Wishes

My friend Peggi is having a birthday today, so of course I had to make her a fabric postcard to mark the occasion. Last summer I was fortunate enough to be invited over to Peggi's house to try some fabric dyeing with a few other quilting friends (see these posts here and here to see the results) and I came home with 6 half-yards of rainbow-colored fabric. So in keeping with my practice of making postcards from selvages, I used the selvages from the dyed fabric for this postcard. No fancy color circles or wording, just the frayed selvage edges. I probably could have embellished the card a bit more, but I have way too many other projects calling my name.

If you'd like to see some of the wonderful quilts that Peggi makes, head on over to my group blog, Random Acts of Stitching, and do a search for "Peggi".

And if you know Peggi, wish her a happy birthday today!

Oh even before I logged in here, I knew you'd made a card.
I still cherish mine.
Happy Birthday to Peggi too!

That's a wonderful birthday card. I love the rainbow effect of the hand dyed fabrics.

That card is just lovely Anya - the hand dyed's speak for themselves - no embellishment needed!

It looks beautiful and it is extra special because of the hand dyed fabrics.

Great job on your friend's birthday postcard.

Happy Birthday to Peggi, and I'm sure she'll cherish her personal card as much as all of us lucky recipients do.
I knew clicking on "here" would take me to the photos of the dyed fabric drying on the bushes. I remember that well from last year. The ultimate "green fabric dryer."
