17/52 Weekly Journal Quilt

Posted 5/2/08


This is my weekly journal quilt 17/52 2008. So, it’s really no secret to most people that know me that I don’t enjoying mowing, or anything really to do with the lawn. I’d rather be inside with fabric. This week it has really rained and I really needed to mow. However, I thought it would be entirely more delightful to make my journal quilt about grass instead of actually mowing. The experience exceeded my expectations. I did mow later by the way…just in case our HOA is reading my blog.

The background of this piece I painted a while back with one of my original speedy-cut stamp designs. On the whole piece back I cut stylized grass out of a beautiful piece of batik and fused them down. I then stitched and outline within each blade of grass with variegated 30 weight thread.

This piece is for sale for $30 in my Etsy shop.

P.S. There is a 20% off sale in my Etsy shop all day Monday May 5th!
