Trillium Postcards

On July 1st I'm teaching a class at Mt Cuba Center on making fabric post cards. Located in Hockessin, Delaware, Mt Cuba Center is a botanical garden dedicated to inspiring appreciation for the beauty and value of native plants and protecting and creating habitats to sustain them. The center offers education credits and certifications, research, conservation, horticultural programs and events. “Gardening on a higher level!”
 
 
Mt. Cuba Center is known for its extraordinary collection of trilliums. I have visited the gardens in late April for the Wild Flower Celebration and been just delirious, enjoying the incredible trilliums and diverse wild flowers, taking millions of photographs. OK, just a slight exaggeration on the millions.
 
 
We won't be sewing the postcards because we aren't bringing sewing machines, just fusing fabric to create the designs. I am providing a pattern and all the materials to make the cards that can actually be sent through the mail. They make nice thank you gifts. I like to send them to Program Chairpersons of Quilt Guilds that have booked my lectures and workshops.
 
 
The postcards can also be framed as a small piece of artwork.
 
All these trilliums are bringing back fond memories of making this quilt, Save Me From the Trilliums, and my hike coming down into Nantahayla Gorge on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina.
 
 
I think we're going to have a fun day at Mt. Cuba Center. If you live in the area, join us! There are still a few spots left in the class. You can sign up here.
