5/52 2008 Weekly Journal Quilt

Posted 2/4/08

I was so enamored with the block print I created last week, that I wanted to work with the stamp again this week. I also have a (messy) habit of saving scraps of things that I think I can work into my fiber art. For example, interesting scrap papers, wrappers, plastics, bags, etc. My poor kitchen counter is on overload, so I decided to try to use some of my findings this week.

I took a brown paper bag and stamped it using my block with three colors of paint. I thought it was quite lovely and took a lot of convincing myself that it was okay to cut it up, because I could always make something similar later!

I also painted the backs of several corrugated coffee cup sleeves in the same paint colors. I gathered some tiny scraps from a quilted collage piece I just finished for Virginia Spiegel’s Collage Mania fundraiser (images to come really soon.) Lastly, I grabbed a beautiful World Market patterned brown paper bag and cut it into strips. Here’s the final composition! In the end, I didn’t make a very big dent in the stuff accumulated on my counter, but that’s par for the course!
