Journal Quilt 2007

This is the last year for the Journal Quilt Project, and we were invited to submit one journal measuring, 11" X 17 — the size of 4 journals in previous years. It is to include 3 techniques found in the book Creative Quilting, The Journal Quilt Project.

Journal Quilts 03/04

In 2003 and 2004, I took part in the Journal Quilt Project, A Page from My Journal. The five journals from each year were displayed with many others at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. In 2006, a book about the journals, Creative Quilting, The Journal Quilt Project, was edited by Karey Bresenhan. Five of my quilts were selected for publication in the book. All journals are 8.5 X 11 inches.

2004 Journal Quilts
I used a beautiful, leathery sycamore leaf from my front yard. I tried to do a different technique each month. I scanned it, photocopied it and printed with it until it was in shreds.
