Colors of India Postcards

This month's postcard swap colors were "the Colors of India." Yum!

Here are the results:

Everyone in the group got various different paisleys.

Here they are all together, before I sewed them onto some sturdy paper backing with a zigzag stitch around the edges:

I've posted a complete tutorial of all the steps involved in this project on one of the Yahoo groups, so if you're interested, send me an e-mail and I'll point you there.

I LOVE mine :D It arrived today, in a wet, blustery southerly, as a perfect antidote to the weather!
Thank you so much!
