44/52 2008 Weekly Journal Quilt

This is my weekly journal quilt 44/52 2008, 6″ x 8″. Living in central Texas, I don’t get a lot of leaves! So when I went to visit Utah recently, I was wow-ed by the awesome colors and variety of leaves.  I made some leaf rubbings with my niece, and then made this piece as well.  I started with a plain piece of white muslin. I placed the leaves underneath and did a rubbing with my favorite watercolor pencils. I then did some more drawing on them and painted them with a wet brush. I added fun stitching to accentuate the veins with variegated threads. I added a back, zig-zagged the edges, and there you go.

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

20/52 Weekly Journal Quilt

This is my weekly journal quilt 20/52 2o08, 6″ x 8″. I struggled with this week’s piece. I am working on a larger piece for a show right now. I am in the beginning phase of the larger project, which for me is a fun part, but a challenging time of really trying to refine the idea and edit what is/isn’t working. I had trouble using my brain for a separate design challenge!

This piece is made of leftover quilted pieces from another recent project. There are areas painted with my handmade stamps and screen prints. There are also areas that are painted and then have small 1/4″ inch strips of fabric fused on top of the painted background. I cut up the pieces of quilt and then reassembled them and ziz-zagged them together.  Last, I fused another piece of fabric to the back and quilted more lines to stabilize the piece.  I finished the edges with a zig-zag stitch.
