More Journal Quilts
I've been playing catch up on my Journal quilts.
is a background of a few random fabric paints, covered by my Sharpie marker drawing of a tree branch, singing bird and word. The bird is painted onto of the background with acrylic inks. I quilted around the marker lines and then decided it needed a few more leaves quilted into the background.
#4: Swirls and Circles
is fabric painted using stencils and Setacolor paints that I used to practice some new free motion quilting designs I learned from this great website.
#5: Flower Man
is made up of pieces left over from the Journal cover I blogged about earlier in the week. I liked the odd shape it took and so I decided not to square it up. Once finished I thought it looked like a fat flower man.
#6: Feathering My Nest
is made from a couple of recycled (upcycled?) Shout Color Catchers I had thrown in the wash with the fabric I ice dyed last week and then didn't blog about (see I don't blog everything I do). I thought they were just so bright and pretty that I couldn't throw them away. I'm glad I found a good use for them. I have a goal of becoming better at quilting feathers so I thought I would use some of my journal quilts as a way to practice this beautiful stitch.
