ATC Fabric Swap

I am hosting a Fabric ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap in March and wanted to make a few beforehand to share with the on line group.  I finished up the first one last night.


This is very similar to a mini quilt.  There are three layers; top, batting and backing.  The difference is that I chose to bead and embroider on the top and through the batting only.  The backing does not show the stitches.  I cut the backing about one inch larger than the top and double folded the edges then hand stitched it to the top.  I used button hole silk thread for the embroidery stitches.  I just love that – it goes through the fabric like butter.

I will be making a few more samples over the next week – stay tuned for more.

Keep it simple!

  2. This is so pretty! I would have thought it is a wall hanging if you hadn’t said it was an ATC!
