There are lots of pictures of quilted postcards on the internet, just search for quilted postcards.
This blog is showing you I made a couple of quilted postcards, the second was much better than the first one!
The key is to find something to give a bit of strength to the postcard, I chose some Trophee Board 210 gm thickness. I had some of this already.
First make your quilt sandwich.
I use pieces of leftover batting, I don’t even join them together, just lay them flat.
I also make these 3 pieces just a little bit larger than the 4″ * 6″, I roughly cut the pieces out.
And I just use a piece of calico as the backing.
Next I quilt them.
Then I roughly cut out a bit of board and the printed Post Card label. Using glue stick I glue the board to the paper and the board to the back of the quilted sandwich.
It is also advisable to write on the Postcard before you start putting it all together, in case you make a mistake, but don’t put the stamp on until the Postcard is all completed.
I then layer them together as shown and using the 4″ by 6″ postcard template, cut them all together.
The stitch around the edge, twice around.
I then created a much better second postcard, as I was having so much fun!
Then I sent both of them through the mail, where they got franked and arrived okay. On reflection I would do an extra layer of stitching around the edges.
