ATC's - Artist Trading Card Swap

These are my first attempt at Fabric Artist Trading Cards - ATC's for short. I loaded a long strip of black patterned fabric onto "Penny" (my long arm machine) and then outlined the 2.5 x 3.5 inch boxes and filled them in with gold metallic thread. I then bound the edges - fiddly at this size and I must try to do a better job next time. I then added jewels with my bejeweler - they don't show up too bad here - but look better in the flesh. I can't wait to get the ones mine are swapped with.
I guess these are really - mini quilts. They could be quite addictive.

I love them! I've caught the ATC bug myself, I haven't swapped yet but I hope to soon.
