All About the Back – Part Two

Most of the time a backing is attached after the quilting is complete so it’s always a nice surprise when someone sends a postcard that showcases the quilting. While Sandy Wagner simply ignored the quilting when writing,

Suzanna Bond’s quilting provided the perfect place to showcase my name and address.

Laurie Walton’s postcards often come with the most interesting holes.

While most people use neutral fabric or paper, others use paint, inks, rubber stamps, tea dyeing to enhance their backs. Others add fabrics and one of my favorites was from Mary Kunna. She added a pocket and a tea bag with her Inspiring Quotes postcard. It went perfectly with the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt:  “A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.”
