Here is my five material (minus one which was allowed) postcard done via my husband.It wasn't really that hard, and I am relieved he picked so well. He even told me he actually took down a second box, and he deliberated and put some back and forth til he thought they worked together. I passed on the black with gold dots because I couldn't figure out how to blend with what I had. Adding lots of pink lace and thread made it quite cheery and feminine, I think.
I even addd a row of hearts after I sandwiched it, so the hearts show on the backside
I had to put this together quickly because I got a baby shower invite this morning and I know just what quilt I want to make. Will go shopping for material first thing tomorrow before it gets unbearably hot. I don't know how long it will take to make and I only have about four weeks. That seems like a lot at the moment, but I know how stuff can happen and get in the way of quilting time.
