I Was Asked...


by another artist to make a textile postcard for her, blues and greens and a vaguely Valentineish theme, that had to be able to go through the post. So this afternoon, I went upstairs and played for a while; the results are here.

The first one is made from lutradur, with fused commercial cotton heart shapes; the other is commercial fabric with hand dyed cotton gauze over it. Both are machine quilted.

I wonder which one she will choose. What do you think? Vote here for your favourite...I'll put all the names in a hat on Tuesday and whoever's name is chosen will receive the other one. In the unlikely event that she wants 'em both, I'll make one specially for you instead...how's that for an offer!

For now, though, I'm off to do some more sewing!

Both of your cards are lovely, I think if I was your friend I would have a very hard time picking just one!

Not an easy choice! They are both lovely, Marion, so if I had to choose one, I'd choose the lutradur.
I bet she takes them both!

I like the green one on the left the most. :)

Guzzisue said...

both lovely but I really like the green one.

fulvia said...

I am guessing the one on the left side. They are both lovely.

ZudaGay said...

I bet she takes both too...I would! I like them both....but if I have to pick one....I pick...the...blue and green with the adorable hearts!

Liz said...

I like the one on the right best, but that's probably because I like bright colours!

I've just opened an Etsy shop, Marion - www.lizplummer.etsy.com - any tips (or suggestions!) gratefully received!!

Sixsisters said...

They are both so lovely. I am partial to the blueish green heart though. I will have to go with that one.
I hope I win I hope I win I hope I win I hope I win

I should think she will chose the colourful one. Why? Because that is the one I would choose - I love it :)

I like them both, they are so bright and I dislike pink. I think the one on the left is my favorite. I am sure your friend will take both so you'll have to make more. Mary

Julie said...

I'm with everyone here, they are both great for different reasons. As she likes greens and blues I would say the first one but I'm sure she'll have trouble choosing.

Jan said...

I'm writing quick before I read anyone elses comments. I'd pick the one with the hearts on it. Ha ha, okay, I'd pick the one with the hand dyes. It looks more blue and green.

She won't be able to choose and will take both :-)
or the one with bright colors.
They are both beautiful.

Attack of the Vintage said...

Both are lovely, however, I like the hearts and flowers one the most because it is brighter. And I love bright colors.

I would take both! I prefer the one on the left though

spiralsun65 said...

They're both gorgeous! If absolutely pressed to pick just one, I think I would go for the green one on the left - but I love them both.

smarcoux said...

lisette said...

i like the green one - such lovely sea greens and depth of colour :)

Doreen Kinkade said...

They are both gorgeous. I bet she takes both. My favorite one is the Lutradur one.

Barbara Cheeseman said...

Every postcard I see is different, it's such a versatile form of working!
I vote for the green, lefthand one, because it is a tad more unusual than the other, equally desirable one.

I like the one with lutradur. But I agree withe other posters that she'll want both. You have a generous offer.

TracyB said...

They're both great!! I really like the colors in the one on the left. Maybe she'll like them both so much that she'll want both?

I prefer the Hearts and Flowers one, Marion!
