Another present marked off the list1

This is a Christmas present for my brother-in-law that I made from a rust dyed piece of fabric. I made it into a small quilt which I quilted with variegated thread in a wavy line pattern. I then cut out the holes for the cards that I bought for him in Victoria, BC. I zigzagged the edges of the opening with the same variegated thread.

Here’s the final framed cards. The cards are by Kenna Fair. They are prints of her originals. She does wood cuts which she then paints. The originals were beautiful but unfortunately, I couldn’t afford one of those. So I bought two of her greeting cards.

Here’s the back. I used fusible interfacing to attach the cards. Then I fused the back of the card that tells about Kenna to that.

Here’s a closeup of the top card.

And here’s the explanation of her work. My b-i-l is a bird watcher so I hope he likes it!
