Make ATCs & Mug Rugs to Trade at Quilt Festival & More Pet Postcards!

More fabric postcards for Festival’s Pet Project are arriving and looking fantastic! Some more eye candy for you:

An assortment of fabric postcards by rebel quilter, Jamie Fingal. (I love the googly eyes!)

.

.

A sampling of fabric postcards by Pauline Salzman. These pooches are going to be gobbled up fast at the show!

Cute kitties by Terri Stegmiller. The bottom card reminds me very much of my own rescue kitty, Khaleesi!

.

There is still plenty of time to make fabric postcards to benefit Friends For Life! (All of the information is in this post.) We are accepting them here at the Quilts offices through October 23rd, and we will accept them at the show through Friday, November 2nd, in Room 213 on the 2nd floor of the convention center. Please note: Fabric Postcards will go on sale for $20 each at Quilt Festival (not Market) beginning on Preview Night, October 31st.

Share Your Art!

Make Art To Trade at Our Festival Trading Post!

Just because you may not have entered a quilt into our quilt show doesn’t mean you can’t have your art displayed! Our Trading Post where you can trade ATCs (artist trading cards) and mug rugs will be right next to Open Studios near the Food Court, and we hope you will make and bring as many ATCs and mug rugs as you can. This is a very lively section of the show floor, and a great way to share new quilt, surface design, and embellishment ideas with other quilters.


I cruised the web to find some good tutorials for you in case you are not familiar with ATCs or mug rugs:
