Journal Quilts

Two little journal quilts. . .
I was having a rough week and my friend suggested I make a quilt with a bag to put all my troubles but I decided I needed flowers.  I love flowers.  Flowers make me happy.
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them"
Henri Matisse

I pieced the background from scraps and then painted the flower on with FW Acrylic Inks. I then hand quilted the 6" square with black pearl cotton while I watched my daughter play volleyball.

My next journal quilt was made using citrasolv to transfer an image I created using a cut out from a newspaper photo and some words from the newspaper.
I'm calling it "the elephant in the room."
It is quilted on the machine using King Tut threads.
