So, to infuse a bit of interest for me i have begun making journal quilts again. Hopefully playing in this way will get me back on track!
I now keep my journal quilts in a book, so they are easy to look up and refer to
And here is my first new one!
This one made from a base of gold organza needlefelted onto some batting, then I have added some scraps of sheers, organza, chiffon and netting and stitched around them free motion. I also added a piece of dyed batting which i attached with free motion pebbles. I felt that the focus needed to be floral, so i added a free motion sketch of some basic flowers. I finally finished off with some beads and running stitch.
Considering how long it is since i sat at my machine, I am pleased with this one. Let's hope that it is the first of many, hopefully weeky journal quilts!
