Valentine arch card thingies

So, what's behind door number one? And door number two?

One of these is for an upcoming swap, the other is a Pay it Forward gift. Both of them are arches made with a pelmet vilene base, stitched together to make a folding "card". I started with a postcard sized rectangle (4x6") so they are quite small. There's a fair amount of shiny material on them, so they didn't photograph quite so well a they might have done, but I'm very happy with them.

And see - I finished quilting the batik quilt - now to put a binding on and stitch it down. Don't hold your breath on that, but it WILL get done, sooner or later.

The valentine arches are very cool!

The arches really are cool -- I'm really digging the shape for some reason :0). As for the batik -- I know, bindings are boring -- but just think, if you do it now, it will be done. A complete quilt you just have to pull out of the closet for appropriate gift giving :0).

The arches are so cute. Great idea. Well done on finishing the quilting. The borders always seem to be a hard thing to get at for some reason. Must be the hand sewing.
