Artist Trading Cards Done

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)
2.5" x 3.5"
All fabric and embellishments from stash.
Original designs.
Completed 6/15/2012.

The first one I made. Angular machine quilting, gold and green beads. Used black on the back before I found out I needed to put my name, etc. Added an off-white label, wrote info.

Leftovers from the first ATC. Zigzag stitching around red fabric, gold triangles on black, then added interior gold lines. Had to add label to this one, too, because it had black backing.

Probably my favorite. There wasn't enough of this scrap to cover the front, so I added black. The edge between the print and the black is raw. Gold stitching. Used yellow for the back, so was able to write without adding a label.

Very purple. I had the buttons and ribbon already. Glitter on the buttons likes to come off, so I'm keeping this ATC in a little zip bag in hopes that the other three won't get glitter on them.

Tomorrow is the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Nevada City, about 2.5 hours away. I'm hoping to go, but it's such a long drive. If I can't catch a ride with another member, I may not go. But if I make the trip, I'll share the ATCs with the group, then mail to my swap partner by Monday.

  1. Hi Debbie. I got my trading cards on Saturday last but was on my way to a camping trip so couldn't check in with QG. I think you did a nice job as you said it was your first attempt. I especially love the gold/black one-very dramatic! Thank you for the great quilted ATCs.
    I thought I'd come over to see your blog while I thanked you! Come visit me sometime at
