Let me start by stating the only rule:
THERE ARE NO RULES!!
haha, tricked ya!
but seriously, there are absolutely no rules and I'm the one who asks, 'what will happen if I do __________ (whatever I'm not supposed to)?' so I won't be telling you there's only one way to do these.
ATCs are generally 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
So its kinda hard to make a list for these since I use whatever I have on hand and I want you to use whatever you have on hand, lol. I consider that the 'artist' part of ATC, haha
Any how, I wanted to give ya'll a chance to gather up some goodies but since you are the person deciding what your card looks like, you're also in charge of deciding what you'll use.
Think of this as a teeny tiny little quilt sandwich: top, middle & back
TOP: since it won't be washed you can use whatever you can stitch, glue or fuse together.
MIDDLE: I usually use flannel, a scrap of batting or felt.
BACK: I usually use a light colored fabric so I can sign the back
This is a good way to experiment with a new technique since you aren't committing to a big project.
If you have any questions feel free to post them here & come back to play on Friday!

The smallest Cross in the corner is the one you put in the room.
I hope all our daily ups and downs are with needle and thread.

Since there's no rules - I guess I'm ready for this one. LOL I'll just have to lay out odds and ends of...stuff.
Just don't keep us up too late, Teacher. Looks like we are getting up Saturday at 4 a.m. to get to a family reunion around 11 a.m. or so. (I am NOT looking forward to that. I once told DH that absolutely nothing could get me up THAT early!)
Does this hat make my butt look big?
I'll be at quilt camp on Friday but I'll try to check in to see how it's going.
Keep calm and carry on
Life is good!!!
In God We Trust
I'm hoping to join in too! I joined a few swaps of these on this board a few years back and they are lots of fun to make...
Tory, do you know where I can buy some creativity like you have?
McP- I truly believe that creativity is a learned process. Start pushing the envelope a little, buy yourself a pack of markers or some colored pencils & a cheap sketchbook, copy some stuff you like & try to add your own touch, above all don't be too hard on yourself it's supposed to be FUN!! And nobody has fun when somebody is picking at mistakes. You wouldn't criticize someone else's efforts so don't criticize your own.
Hey! Don't I have an AWESOME 'favorite flower ATC' that u did? It was beautiful & when I get home tonight I'm posting a pic here so stop talking smack, lol.
Someone sent me a goodie bag with some itsy-bitsy goodies, snippets of netting and slickery fabrics, etc. but I don't remember who now. AND I don't remember where the packet is stuffed. I'll check in my CQing supplies.
Question one of many I'm sure:
Are we sewing on an itsy-bitsy square or on something larger, then cut apart and serge, zigzag, blanket stitch around the cut edge? Inquiring mind wants to know if I need to get one of those jewelers thingy-doodles to hang around my neck.

What time does the PJ Party start? Don't want to be late!
I love ATC's and I finally have the internet at home. Too bad I won't be home Friday night. Have fun ladies.
What time does the party start?
Edited to add: My bad. I see the time one post above. That's 9 eastern, right? If anyone hears snoring before the party starts, please wake me up, I want to see how Tory does ATCs!This message has been edited. Last edited by: mcpatches,
Since I found my little stack of favorite flower AtCs I thought y'all would enjoy seeing them again. As you can see they are all absolutely wonderful!!! Any one of these talented ladies could teach this class with no problem whatsoever!
The only real question is: what should our next atc swap theme be?
This one is by TeaSea
If I have the energy I will be there. I have always wanted to do ATC's but never have gotten around to it.
Small enough project to finish without taking lots of time.
Butterflies float around my hillside
I love the pictures you put up. I would just like to know what does ATC stand for?
Oooh I saw several I loved!
Sorry to miss tonight-date night with DH! Sorry to throw you guys over for him-LOL!
Have fun and I'll be looking for eye candy tomorrow!!
Tory, the pics got my all excited. Thank you for teaching this...I cant wait to start the fun.
Sew very pretty!
Crap, 8 will be 9 for me, and that is past my bedtime! I will have to catch up tomorrow, can`t wait to see what you all do tonight.
