This is my weekly journal quilt 30/52 2oo8, 6″ x 8″. I found the base black and white fabric for this piece as I was walking by the remnant bin at a fabric store. It jumped out at me and I’m pleased I took it home! It is a lovely sheer polyester print in a dot and grid design. I fused squares in various types of sheer and opaque green silks and blends on the center squares of the designs. These were tiny pieces I hand dyed limey green in a workshop in 2006. Then I quilted it to the background interfacing with variegated green thread. I added “x” motifs on top of the green squares in thread. Lastly, I zigzagged the edges to finish the piece. Because of the sheen of the fabrics, this piece catches the light particularly well and has a nice glow.
This piece is for sale for $30 in my Etsy shop.
