More ATC's

These ATC's are themed 'Lucky 7's' we used 7 different embellishments on this set.

This set was named 'Purple People Eater' I crazy patched 6 different purple fabrics then machine stitched with a lurex thread over the tops finished off with a purple shaggy wool.

'Oriental' was the thee for this set. I had this lovely Japanese fabric which I fussy cut to get the Geisha's and then embellished with silver thread.

Forgot to photo this set before I posted them, these were Ric Rac where we had to use 3 different type of Ric Rac braid. The braid was hand sewn on this set.


Artist Trading Cards are small quilted items 3 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches in size. they are made the same as quilts having 3 layers top, wadding/stiffener/back. These cards are swapped with other enthusiasts around the world. These are the sets I have made so far.

This theme was White on White

The topic for this set was 'Cuppa Time'
Cute Cats was the theme for this set
