Post Card from England

A couple of weeks ago, back in August, I received this fabric post card in the mail on the day we were getting ready to leave for our cruise to Alaska. This is the first fabric post card I have ever received!

By the picture on the front of the card, I had assumed that the card had travelled to me from England. I flipped over the card to find out that my suspicions were correct. I had received this wonderful little gift from Chris in England. She told me in her message that the name of her quilt group was on the front of the card, the Sew and Sews. I immediately wanted to write back to Chris but there was no last name or address provided. Who was this mysterious quilter named, Chris?

We had received the mail that day literally minutes before we were ready to head out the door on our holiday so I didn't have any time to investigate the source of the post card any further. I had suspicions that the post card was either connected to Leslie or Patricia (both members of my Tuesday quilt group) since they are both from England and still have family and friends there.
Last night I received a phone call from Edna (also a member of my Tuesday quilt group) filling me in on all the details. Edna had just received her post card from England yesterday and told me that she had been "responsible" for starting something with a group of quilters from England. This group was connected to Leslie through Leslie's sister. There are 10 quilters in the England group--the same number as in our Tuesday group here in Canada. Edna has all sorts of plans for us to do some exchanging with the English quilters. Leslie's sister is due to visit Canada later this month and we are scheduled to get together with her and work out the details of the exchange. How exciting!

Does this mean you are going to have to do fabric post cards too?

I love the double decker bus Chris used for her card.
