Monthly Journal Quilt 4/12 2009

This is my monthly journal quilt for April, 4/12 2009, 12″ x 12″. The way I figure it, April is almost over for me due to lots of things going on over the next 2 weeks, so I figured I better get to it!

This piece is created in the same way my small lines series is constructed. For this piece, I began with a background piece of fabric that I painted with blue/aqua paint with a handmade stamp. I then took a piece of purple fabric that I painted, cut it into strips and fused it to the background. I then sandwiched it with batting and backing and quilted it. Then, I cut it up into lots of pieces and reassembled them with a zig zag stitch. It’s a fun stripey puzzle to re-stitch together. I machine quilted over it some more and then finished it with a zig zag stitch around the edges.

This piece is for sale in my etsy shop.
