Fabric Postcards, Improving

I have so many ideas fighting in my head after Festival of Quilts that I hardly knew where to start this morning.  I put away all my purchases and tidied my sewing room a little and then decided I needed to start and finish a complete piece of work today.  I have recently joined the British Quilt List Postcard Group and am having a little swap with the co-ordinator, Claire Scott, before I get going on any of their full swaps.  Inspired by Gail Lawther's New Zealand quilts and my own time in that wonderful country I decided to make a postcard which would be the "Final Day at the Beach this Summer".
I enjoyed looking at some of my photographs over a nice cup of mint tea and then created this:
It's much more successful that the ones I made with a card backing, this one has iron-on pelmet vilene as the middle layer and I applied the fabric to a base of muslin.  The edges are not as good as I would like but I'm getting better.  I hope it survives the postal system.

    My LQS has a display of hangings made from Gail Lawther's new book - they are stunning en masse
