This is my monthly journal quilt for March, 3/12 2009, 12″ x 12″, mounted to stretched canvas.

This piece started with a sketch from my sketchbook last month, and then took a different road while I was making it!  I started this piece with a purple piece of my hand dyed fabric for the background. I then used a foam stamp to print circles on the background with 3 colors of purple textile paints. I then added the two flowers by fusing fabric to the background. The purple circles are from a single piece of my hand dyed fabric that had tons of color variation in it. The green stems are from a commercial batik fabric. To finish the piece, I quilted it with wavy lines with a purple variegated cotton thread. I then zig zagged the edges and went to water the lawn. :) Happy spring!

This piece is for sale in my etsy shop.
