Postcard Flimsy! Postcard Flimsy!
YAY! Yippee skippy! Woohoo! Do you get the idea that something very exciting has happened? It has! My Postcard from Sweden quilt is now a flimsy. Let me share the beauty first, without further adieu.
Queen Size Postcard from Sweden
Isn’t it just gorgeous?! I love it so much and it will really brighten up my bedroom. In February of this year, Sandra from MMM quilts started a QAL for Postcard and I joined in. Before that, Shannon of Flemings Nine shared this wonderful photo last October of her gorgeous quilt:
This is Shannon’s king size quilt that she listed in her Etsy shop. Those pillowcases – I adore them! This inspiration led me to purchasing a stack of fabric that same month. Sandra’s QAL inspired the cutting commencement and the first two blocks as a trial.
Next steps included a lot of sewing HSTs, ironing and trimming. Lots and lots of trimming.
Speed ahead to a successful Saturday filled with sewing the last two rows of the 16 blocks x 17 row queen size flimsy. Put a period on it! Except for the two pillow shams that need to still be laid out, sewn and eventually quilted.
This flimsy will be ready for the final parade on Sandra’s website later this month. Perhaps a little quilting will commence as well. I can’t wait to have this on my bed, and snuggle under it.
