A Quilting misjudgement leads to a Great Postcard

Recently my mom and I have been playing with the disappearing 4 patch quilt technique.  This post card is a result of that process.  She felt that the one part was cut too narrow and it didn't make for a nice quilt block.  Once she trimmed it up and fused it to some interfacing, it makes a wonderful postcard.  Lucky for me, I was the recipient.  The technique she tried is illustrated in this post from my quilting blog.
The colours are a bit off, it should be more yellow and purple.  Measures 4 x 6 inches. 
This is the quilt top that I made using the same technique.  Details are shown in the post linked to above.

Leaving a comment is like sending a postcard; we'd love to hear from you.
