Postcards from Hawaii

These fabrics I cut for postcard kits looked so lovely that I had to take a picture before I packaged them up. I've often been tempted to try a watercolor quilt with Hawaiian prints--and the picture above gives you an idea of what one would be like. Whaddya think? Too much? Click on the pictures to get a bigger view--but be prepared--they're COLORFUL.

These are a few of the quilt postcard class samples. The little ship was a picture I downloaded from the internet of the Pride of Hawaii (thanks for the idea, Jeni H). I printed them out on muslin so we could have a picture of the ship we were sailing on. These are so much fun to make--but even funner to get in your mailbox. For photos of the cruise, you can click on the link in the right margin to see my Flickr photoset.

I love all the bright colors together. Enjoyed your how to photograph a quilt experience. It's difficult to make it look as good in the picture as it is for real.
