I was asked to make a fabric postcard by Cindi for a group present. She gave us instructions on how to construct it which I read and promptly forgot where I put the directions. I did remember that it had to be 4 inches by 6 inches and to sew a paper backing to the fabric with satin stitching. With this in mind, I took scraps from my current project and made a small version. The Basket Weave pattern that I am working on calls for 2 1/2 inch wide strips. For the postcard, I decided to use 1 1/2 wide strips. This is how it came out. Pretty good. Postcards make nice small projects and it didn't take much time.

If I have time, I am thinking of writing down the instructions on how to piece this quilt. It is based on a picture of a beautiful quilt from the 2012 Tokyo quilt show. Of course, that quilt used tiny tiny 1 inch pieces.
