Happy birthday to Q!

It's Q's birthday! One year ago I started this blog, the English sequel to my Dutch blog, De lopende band ('The conveyor belt', have a look at this interesting blog - that I found when I was searching for my old blog on Google! - for the translation of this Dutch term).

What a lot has happened in this past year. I went to hear Kaffe Fassett, did a beginners course at a quiltshop, went on my first retreat (next one is in 2 weeks!!!), made my first pictorial quilt, discovered ATCs and fabric postcards... And now I find myself slowly drifting towards art quilts, or fiber art...

As it is a birthday today, there should be a present... So I will let the random number generator pick one of the comments on this posting and that person will get a fabric postcard sent to her home (doesn't matter where that is!). I can't show you the postcard yet, as I have to make it first!

I can show you this one, though, that I sent to a very good friend in The Netherlands:

And these ATCs, that have all reached their destination - they were for mini swaps (6 participants in each swap) with Chocolate and Different Fabrics (everything but cotton) as their themes:

My ATC container is almost full:

And the postcards I have received so far look very good in my sewing room:

I will show more soon!

Beautiful work Linda, have you tried turning off the flash when you photograph shiny fabrics?
