Journal Quilts 2015 no 2

This isn't really no 2 but no 3, because no 2 is still in process, Ah, well.
I had seen an article about needle felting stitching into a background and decided to have
a go.
I started with a piece of batting with some fibres felted into it.
I started doing some stitching into it with wool.
And here it is after a long time needlefelting by machine and three broken needles!
The difference is only very slight.  Perhaps I should have left the french knots until after, so as not to break my needles, and then the petals might have felted in a bit better.
So this Journal quilt was a bit of a failure, but of course I learned a few things and that is what it is all about!



Happy Creating!

  1. Gosh, Vicki, I wouldn't call this a failure. There's not a day goes by that I don't learn somethng new while making art. I agree that learning is what it's all about. I like this piece, especially since I've only felted once, and I did it by hand with a single needle. talk about TIRED!
