Modern Art Postcards - Project Quilting

"Modern Art Postcards," 6" x 4" (each), made for Project Quilting, Season 7, Challenge 6: A Goose in the Monkey Wrench, Mar. 2016 in Yellow Springs, Ohio
 
Challenge recap for  "A Goose in the Monkey Wrench":  
For this challenge you must include at least one monkey wrench block and one flying geese block.  You may add other blocks if you wish.
 
 
I decided to make two postcards for this challenge, for two reasons. One is I've been working on a bed-sized custom quilt and that took most of my time. 
 
 
The second reason is since there two traditional quilt blocks were part of the Project Quilting Focus Through The Prism challenges, I thought it would be appropriate to use the same fabric we used for those challenges, and I mostly have small pieces of that fabric left.
 
 
Both postcards are 6" x 4" and had white fabric on the back where you can write a message and the address. And you can actually send these through the mail as they are! All of the edges are sewn down and are finished with a satin stitch using black thread.
