I’m finding two different listings on Etsy for the Quilt Designs for Postcards Carol Mansfield Book from 2005. For today’s blog, I’m including images from both listings for showing a good representation of what the book includes for the 24 designs.

First, it has been a while since my Fabric Postcards Keepsakes You Can Make & Mail post (10-15-2017), that book is by Franki Kohler.

Secondly, the idea of having made the time to create a small quilted postcard is intriguing.

Third, it makes sense seeing the designs in the book have a range of holidays and seasons for year-round occasions.
