24/52 Weekly Journal Quilt

Posted 6/18/08


This is my weekly journal quilt 24/52 2008, 6″ x 8″.

This piece looks a little shiny in the photo…because it is!  I created this journal quilt as a study for the next big quilt in my tree series.  The background of this quilt is a wipe rag from some purple painting and stamping that I created using shimmery Lumiere paints. I then layered batik free cut strips on top and fused them down.  I also zigzagged the edges to the Peltex base and straight stitched them with a nice thick variegated Sulky thread.  I then spray basted a purple organza circle down for the halo of the tree.  Lastly, I cut a tree out of fabric that I created with a stamp I designed.  I fused this down and then zigzagged all around the halo and tree.

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