Who's joining me in making 35 ATCs (artist trading cards) to celebrate the 35th anniversary of International Quilt Festival/ Houston next week?
Last night I packed all of my Open Studios supplies and discovered I had gotten just a tad carried away in making ATCs recently...
Don't they look like a fat stack of stitched pancakes?
Some of my collections:
Happy Birthday Houston!
My "Gobble Gobble" ATCs:
My "It's Still Rock 'n Roll To Me" ATCs:
My "Helloooo, Rat!" ATCs (These are little momentos of my "Sopranos" Quilt from Long Beach)
My "Arts 'n Crafts" ATCs (I made them using Beryl Taylor's Fabric Paper technique and then applied molding paste on top through a stencil.)
My "Everything But the Kitchen Sink" machine needle-felted, metal, and stitched ATCs:
I've shown you mine, now I hope you'll show me yours. If you are coming to Houston and visiting us in Make It University! and/or making ATCs and posting them to your blog, let us know in the comments area and leave us a link so we can see.
If you've never made ATCs before and want some simple directions, here's an ole' blog entry of mine that shows how to make some:

A lot more to come over the next few days as we share more International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene news and giveaways!
