Post card swap

I finished two of these similar post cards today for an online swap. After visiting the Manteca quilt show yesterday, and purchasing a product called timtex for the interfacing of the cards, I threw myself into making them. I also bought the book, Post Cards: Make and Mail by Cheryl Haynes, Barbara Cooley and Beth Davis. It had the other clue I'd been missing. Cutting the interfacing 1/4 inch smaller all the way around makes the stitching of the edges much neater.
