boochura asked:
I really appreciate your ability to free yourself to attempt such a great postcard! Having not been inspired yet, may need to watch the class a few times. lol
marialando answered:
Thank you! In case it helps, I first found inspiration by choosing which technique from the class I wanted to use. I already had the blue "Grand Central Fabric" and went to the fabric store where I found the gingham and black chintz. I made more squares than I needed and played around with them on the design wall. I had to make some more squares to get the strip going in the direction I wanted. The ric rac was a final detail added right at the end when I realized I had a "postcard." Have fun!
