Completed Red Stars and a Postcard

When I arrived at my sister's last week I found my red star quilt waiting for me with all the quilting completed. I'm so happy with this! Click on the pictures and you can see a close-up of the beautiful quilting that Deb Geyer did. The center of the stars can't have been easy. I still have to sew on binding, but since I won't do that for a while, this is this quilt's
final appearance.



When I came home last night, I found this beautiful postcard from Joy Vale, sent all the way from Australia as part of an exchange on Stitchin Fingers. It's hand painted fabric with a lovely suede-like texture, and some applique. Thank you, Joy! This was a delightful piece of mail. In fact, this was a good week for me and the post office!

Lucky gal! The red star quilt is even better now, if that is possible. Good for you-I know you will just love having it.

Welcome home. You were missed! Your star quilt quilting is unrivalled but then, you probably knew that! It's breathtaking. I love your postcards, too. I'll bet they feel neat (both the quilt and the postcard).

Glad you redefined "going postal" with style. You've got it, too!!!
