Fourth of July Fabric Postcard


This is a fabric postcard that I made for a friend.  It was very simple to make.  The base is Peltex.  I printed the address and a quote from President Eisenhour on the reverse side.   I found the image on the web.  The site has a number of vintage postcards for the Fourth of July.  The star fabric is from my stash.  I think it was left over from a flag quilt I made for my son.  I used my Janome 11000 to do the satin stitching.  I think it does the best job of all three of my machines when it comes to the satin stitch. 
Our family is looking forward to a wonderful Fourth of July.  We will be attending events in downtown Mesa tomorrow evening, fireworks after the baseball game on Saturday evening, and lunch after church with the granddaughters on the 4th.  Back to the ballpark to see the Chicago Cubs play on Monday afternoon.  Busy next four days.
