Others are random ideas and often I will work on a idea and expand it and create a collection from one idea, shoes/dresses/hats, ducks or garden pots!
An idea will come to me and I will quickly do a sketch. Some get made immediately and others get filed until I have time to make them.
Sometimes I will make a number of similar ones and for Christmas, Easter and Anniversary ones I can make up to ten of the same design - but they will all be slightly different. Over the year I make about 100 postcards in all.
My Quilted Postcards are inspired by so many different things. Originally some were taken from ties I made my husband. Others, both flowers and butterflies, are inspired by embroidery transfers and a few from poems like “Daisy The Cow”.
The landscapes are taken from photos, that my husband has taken on holidays and places we have visited
