Fiber Art Postcards for FFAC

Virginia Spiegel ( ) is sponsoring her last year of Fiber Arts for A Cause at Houston's International Quilt Festival in November, and I've been making postcards to be "sold" (actually, to be given for each $30 tax deductible donation made to the American Cancer Society) during Festival. Here are some of them:

The first one is called "Curiosity", and is hand-painted fabric with painted dryer-sheet overlay.
The second one is "Coffee by the Sea", with a coffee filter and painted/distressed Tyvek, both hand-stitched to the quilt sandwich.

Above are "Don't Even Think About It" and "Copper Bloom", each made with the same piece of hand-painted fabric as a background.

"Alice" is a photo transferred to fabric and mounted on velvet upholstery samples.

  1. Ohhh, ahhh. Love these postcards - will have to especially look for the Eye one in Houston. They are all really cool.


Talk to me, Y'all!
