The Postcrossing World Map Quilt (update)

I just realized, both [personal profile] iceraptoress and [personal profile] porkwithbones are on Postcrossing and have gifted me with fabrics... so I can use bits of those fabrics for the Postcrossing quilt! Which is great, that's two three more countries I can make applique for now :D

And I received 2 fabrics today, so let me show them to you :)

Briefmarken

One of the neat things about Postcrossing is the stamps that people send. I wish we had cool interesting stamps to use, but because ours just say "Forever" on them instead of numerical values, I've heard different things about whether they're OK to use for international postcards. (There are specific international "forever" stamps as well.)

This one came today from Czechia/Czech Republic.

The text on the central stamp reads: the Way to Statehood during the World War 1916

This is part of a larger panel, of course, but here's what I could get from the sides and bottom:

...the Czechoslovak national council based in (Paris? partly obscured but that could be it)

naval battle at Jutland, battle at verdun, on somme - death of emperor F. Joseph I. - new emperor Charles I

...defending Czech interests with loyalty to the Habsburg monarchy
