Vicki at http://www.3creativestudios.com/ challenged people to make Journal quilts. Here is my first one. The pale fabric was a pleated scrap that I layed leaves on and used Disperse dyes with to color the background. They are dyes that you usually paint on paper and iron on fabric that is at least 65% synthetic. They can be used directly on fabric too. Then I machined the leaves with metallic thread. That piece was stitched to dark green cotton. Both sections were then edged with multiple rows of Chenille yarn.
