Postcards
Did I mention that I have opened a new section in my Etsy Store?  I am offering postcard sets, and there are 3 different collections.  The first is images from my quilts that have flowers on them.  The second theme of postcards are fish themed.  And the third set is a wonderful collection of some of my urban architecture themed quilts.  And, now I have learned that it is truly difficult to take a photograph of glossy postcards!  The actual postcards are very lovely and made from a high quality of paper.
You can find the listings in the new prints section of my shop at Etsy, Kathy York Art Quilts (shop has been closed).

Park Place
update (original post, here)

I have finally finished sewing on all the little people.  I had intended to have them tucked away inside their homes.  However, after making the movie, I changed my mind.  I liked how the quilt looked with the people on the garden and lawns, so I added some small details.  Here is the overall...
Then I wanted someone to walk a dog near the trees, but they don't make worry dolls in dogs... So, I improvised.  This is my version of a dog.  It could be a yellow lab?  However, it sometimes looks like a cat to me.  I couldn't decide to add a leash or let it roam freely.  Guess which one won?
Next, one of my favorite sections of the video is the two children flying a kite on the roof, so I added that back in.
I love the way the swing suggests movement.  Fun!
And there are more, but I decided not to post all the details.  Save some surprises for seeing it in person!
Hope you have enjoyed!  Thanks for stopping by.
If you haven't seen the movie yet, here it is again.
