I got so many responses and questions that I thought I do another post to answer everyone at once.
The guild's challenge has a very loose set of parameters: just make a fiber postcard sized 4 inches by 6 inches to be returned to the maker at the end of the meeting. The cards will be displayed that night during the meeting. People may vote for their favorite postcard by placing 25 cents which equals one vote in the appropriate jars. You may vote for more then one and you may vote often. The winners will be determined by the postcards which receive the most votes. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners. Money raised will go to Community Service to purchase backings for the charity quilts.
The first one I made was Aspen Glow (the tree one). I had a lot of leftover fabric from the quilt in this post that already had fusible web on the back. I freehand cut the trunks of the trees and all those teeny, tiny leaves. I used some black tulle on top to keep it together.
The second one, Chickadee, is also made with more of the leftovers. This one is also entirely cut free-hand: just my scissors and the fabric. Because the pieces were a bit bigger, I was able to keep them fused down. I quilted through each piece of fabric at least once.
The third one, Through the Gate, is made with leftovers from the quilted wallhanging in this post. I didn't have a piece big enough of the garden fabric leftover so I pieced it together by fusing. The gate drawn on the back of the paper-backed fusible and then ironed to the black fabric I cut the black fabric out using a craft knife, like Xacto knife, and then fused the gate over the house and flower garden. I then did an almost satin stitch over the bars of the gate.
I hope this answers some of the questions.
O, BTW, I'm going to take 2: the Chickadee and the Gate.
