Christmas Gift Ideas from For Quilts Sake

Quilted postcards are made with a stiff layer of innerfacing sandwiched between two layers of fabric. All fabrics are securely sewn down and the edge is finished with a satin stitch.

The back can be written on and then sent through the mail, or use the clear envelope that is included if you'd rather mail it that way. Or pop it in a 4" x 6" picture frame and give as a gift, or keep for yourself.

Christmas-themed postcards make great holiday decorations, gifts to send to a special friend, or stocking stuffers. To purchase Christmas-themed and regular quilted postcards, click here.

Christmas Gift Ideas from For Quilts Sake

Want to send unique Christmas cards to those special people on your list? Here's a set of six hand-made cards, each with a quilt square pieced together in a 9-patch design with Christmas-themed fabric.

Each card measures 4.5" x 6.25" (11 x 16 cm) and has a 3.5" x 3.5" opening showing the fabric quilt square.

All cards are made with either white or cream colored card stock and are blank inside so you can add your own personal messages. Six cream colored envelopes are also included.

Cards are $3 each or a set of six for $15. Please contact me for any amount less or more than six. To purchase a set of cards, click here. Non-Christmas-themed cards are also available.
