size matters

There's just something charming about small things isn't there? This little quilt is postcard sized, and I'd love to make a whole series of them, or even a series of series; birds, flowers, mushrooms, moths.
I painted on muslin and then did abit of outline quilting but I think this would be a great size to try some finer painting technique and figure out the basics of machine quilting. My old pfaff predates the walking foot, which is something like predating the wheel, in the quilting world. Still, if I'm going to achieve some mastery of machine quilting, I have to start somewhere, and 3 by 5 is probably as good a place as any.
