Little Improv Thank You’s

Recently I wanted to send thank you notes and somehow a store purchased card fell short of how I wanted to express my gratefulness. I was also feeling a bit restless about my sewing – time to break out the scraps and do some improve! I chose various brights and just had to add some black and white and just began to piece.

The heart shape on this one below was a happy  accident! There was a fair amount of sewing with those narrow strips, but it was fun.

Basically a wonky log cabin, the one below is my favorite.

Each wasounted on stabilizer then glued to the front of a 5″ x 7″ card. If you do a card like this, remember to go to the post office to have it weighed as there was extra postage. But OH SO worth it! I just hope the recipients understand how much I appreciated them.
