Postcards...



On the wall in my living room is this quilted fabric postcard display unit - I made it a while back to display a selection of the fabric postcards I'd received in swaps over the few years I was swapping those constantly. Periodically, I change what's in the display - maybe 4 or 5 times a year. Sometimes it's seasonal (I usually have an autumnal one, for instance, and usually a Christmas/winter one) and sometimes, it's just what I feel like after a few months of having it the same. This past weekend I went from "winter" (all the actual Christmas ones had been swapped for more neutral ones back in the beginning of January) to a combination of spring and just stuff I like in springish colours...

Here's a few individual ones:



Made by Susan Lenz for her major PC and ATC swap/exhibition in 2008.




Made by me for a swap with a theme of "May".





Made by Sue W. for a BQL swap with the theme Circles.

Am I understanding correct you always have the bacing up and you have enough postcards to change just the post card for the seasons. WOW what a great idea.

I love this idea, I really need to make me one! I have all my postcards in folders and boxes it would be lovely to have them on display. I see a few that I recognise in your current display ;-)
