July's card swap with BQL

I took part in a swap in July on BQL. We swapped fabric cards. I made 7 and sent 6 of them. In exchange I received 6 different cards.

Today I'll show you the cards I received. They are all different and all beautiful.

This first one from Irene in Scotland is of a thistle of course.
There is some distressed netting, and free motion quilting on the flower, with squares of fabric to make the background.

This one is from Carole in England. Each piece is carefully cut and appliqued on the background.

From Marian K, she had to eat a lot of penguin bars to make her cards and there is a very fine blue non woven fabric on top. Lots of fun.

From Sue W, the photo doesn't make justice to the shiny pieces on the fabric and to the hand embroidery.

From Miriam B there is some machine applique and free machine quilting.

And last in this series but there is no real order, this card from Inge in Germany, hand embroidered with a log cabin.
I am very grateful to all these ladies for the hard work they shared with me. In fact I enlisted on BQL post card group to take part in more card swaps.
Next I'll show you the cards I made.
