Post Card Project

 Post Card Project

2018 is the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.  We are asking customers to join us in commemorating this occasion by making postcard sized blocks which will be made into a quilt.

We are asking you to include with your block a £5.00 donation which will all go to Royal British Legion. 

The area of your design should cover a maximum area of 6” x 4” (Postcard size).  The background however, should be larger than this so that we can trim to size and stitch into the quilt.  We suggest that you create your design on a background of approximately 8” square.  This will make it easier for you to work on and for us to trim.  Your design can be portrait or landscape.

The theme is New Beginnings.  You may like to dedicate your block to a family member or friend.  You can applique, embroider (I used both of these techniques in the example above), you can create a patchwork block, hand sew or machine sew.  The choice is yours.

If you are looking for inspiration, you could Google ‘First World War Postcard Images.

picture shown is just an example - you can create any design you like but please stick to the size.
