I had decided to make a simpler version of the card I made for the mosaic swap for this one so cutting all the little pieces seems to be the perfect thing to do sat in front of the TV last night. I made the pieces larger so they are one inch rather than the half inchers I used in the mosaic swap, but for some reason it seemed more difficult to sew the satin stitch lines with this size (?).
Of course I decided to choose orange and have a great array of orange fabrics to choose from now as a result of the lovely secret santa pressies I've had. Although I used the same range of fabrics for each card they have all turned out slightly different due to the patterns on the fabric. I also decided to vary the thread I used for the 'grout' lines. This card is my favourite of the bunch, the varegated thread had some white in it which I think adds to the light effect that you might think of with a rainbow. I hope the receipents of these cards like them!
